    Nature boy sizing?

    I know it's always questioned with all bikes. But going for it anyway. I'm 5'11 with a 33 1/2 inseem. I intend to ride the thing on singletrack and gravel. So what size do you ride?

    I only ask because I've never had a road bike, and don't know where to start.

    I'm about the same. 54/56 seat tube with a 56 top tube is about right for me. The cross check has a 54 seat tube with a 56 top tube. Don't know specifically about the nature boy sizing, but it sure does look like a sweet ride. I especially like the Hennepin bridge inspired dropouts. The best thing to do is go test ride one at the LBS. Not sure where you're at, but Minneapolis has a few LBS that have a couple. Good luck.

    I am almost exactly the same size as you and test rode a 55cm Macho Man with basically the same geometry. It fit like a glove. If you can test ride it would be best, but with a 56.5cm top tube this should be just right.

    I am 5'10" with a 32" inseem. Just bought a 52cm and it fits like a glove. I would give a 55cm a try.

    5'11" here with 33" inseam and ride a 55cm nature boy. It's used mostly as a commuter and gravel grinder and it's a very comfortable fit. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.
