    2011 DB Recoil question!!

    Hello guys, I have been riding for like 4 months 3 times a week. I ride all trails from beginners to expert. I currently have a Fuji Nevada 3 stock. Now my 1 year anniversary is coming and I am getting a gift. I have been wanting to try a full suspension bike without breaking the bank. I want to get a entry level full suspension bike and keep my hard tail as a commuter. I Came across the recoil, really good price and good reviews. Now I am 5'11 185lbs and I was thinking the medium 18 inches will be the right fit. What do u guys think, medium 18inch or large 20inch? My current Fuji is a 19 inch medium. Thanks for the help.

    Cool. So you think the large 20 inch won't be to big? Thanks for the fast reply. I'm about to pull the trigger on the large

    Im 5'11 175 and I went with the medium. I sat on a large and it was too big IMO. Im a very agressive rider and prefer the smaller frame anyway.

    I think the standover height is the same on all.

    NVM, Go with the large frame. For some reason I wasn't paying attention to the thread title. The geo of the recoil is different form the mission/sorties. You should be fine with a large.
