    Frame Sizing Question

    I am looking to buy a 29er. I am 6'4" with a 34 inseam and rode a 22 in frame in the past. Should a 29er fit more like a road bike since they share the same wheel size? Meaning a 22in HT frame with a 26in wheel will have less stand over height than a 22in HT frame 29er. Won't it? The 29ers I looked at seemed to be higher with less crotch clearance when straddling the top tube. The fit while riding the bikes felt perfect though. Can anyone educate me on this. Thanks!!

    Geometry plays a big role in that one. A 29er still could have the same BB height. Then there is the fact that top tubes aren't always straight anymore.
