    What's your height and What size is your Cannondale?

    Just curious of the sizes of cannondale bikes people buy based on their height. Would appreciate your comment on fit and ride comfort. please specify model /year and size. Thanks!

    heres mine:
    Model: Carbon Rush
    Year: 2008
    size: Large
    Height: 6 ft.

    There is no one right answer. For me, at 5' 10", I have three different sizes. Height alone is meaningless. Some people have short torsos long legs; others vice versa. Do don't take the feedback from here as definitive. Get properly fitted.

    For me:

    "Bad Boy" commuter (Furio X frame): XL. Wanna be stretched out on the road; seat tube isn't too long. Furio X have Caffeine geometry, rather than Optimo or Furio geometry..

    Hardtails & Scalpel: L. Pure cross-country riding.

    Few times I've ridden fairly technical stuff on a Moto: M.

    I stand at 1m 93 cm, mine is a customized Rush 2007, sized XL; she is better portrayed in my profile.

    I ride a 2008 Rush 4 size L and my height is 6'1 (~184cm), inseam is just under 34" (~86cm).

    When I adjust the seatpost so that my knee has a 5-10 degree bend at the bottom of my stroke, the seat is a couple inches above the handlebars. This is after throwing on a 2" riser bar to replace the mid-rise bar that came stock on the bike. The stem is the stock one, 120mm with 5 degree rise...

    5'8" Medium aluminum Rush. Shorter legs, longer torso. Not sure, but probably could have been happy on a small, too.

    I am 6'4" (193cm) with a 6'7" wingspan. I ride an XL-sized Scalpel. Scalpels run pretty large actually because of the long top tube.

    I was riding a 140mm stem but when I upgraded to a Lefty the longest SI stem made was 120mm. I think it was a change for the better as it helps set me back a little farther on steep downhills. I might even try a 100mm stem. I still ride flat bars and bar ends, it's an XC bike after all.

    08 Rush 5z Medium frame. I am 5'11". Was fitted on both a medium and large frame. Medium frame seemed to fit me a little better.

    5'8" on a Large F7

    The large feels a bit big but the medium felt a bit cramped. I was right in between.

    Edit: I took my first ride today (nothing fancy just a few highway miles) and it feels just right. I am glad that I didn't go with the Med.

    6'1" long legs, short torso, on a medium Prophet. It fits great for tech. riding, I just need a long seat post for XC riding. The large really felt too long in the TT for me.

    Would have been perfect with a L seat tube, and M top tube.

    5' 11'' (30'' pants inseam)- medium Caffeine/Bad Boy - Tried large, but it felt to big and standover height wasn't good. Medium fits like a glove using 110mm stem.

    5'7" Medium F2000 SL Optimo hardtail. I could have easily gone small- but my torso is long, and I would have felt cramped. Everybody is different. Get fitted by a pro, or Google bicycle size fitting, and get every angle possible, on what best suits a particular rider. You will know your bike is dialed-in to you, once you notice rides becoming easier, longer, and most of all- funner.
