    Doubt About Rogue

    Hello.

    I am going to buy an Ellsworth Rogue. I am 5,8 tall and I will use my Rogue to make freeride and compete in 3 or 4 DH races each year. Acording to the website I should Use an "L" size frame, but I think 24,5 top tube Lenght is too long (even 23,5 is a Bit long for me I think), so I think I should use an "S" size (23,5). For your help, now I have a Banshee Morphine Medium Size (23,2 top tube length)

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Mine is a L and I'm 5,9 tall.
    The top tube is VERY sloopy so it's not really a problem. However I believe that the 23,5 should be right for you. This geometry gives a lot of stability, which is excellent for DH.

    Thank you. Will this frame take without problems freeride (not extreme) use?

    Thanks!!!!

    I weight 214 with gear and I do 5 f drops maxi, so far so good, no problem. (10 months now)
    Tubes look indeed thin but the frame weight is standard for freeride, so I believe it is thick inside
    That bike is very stiff and flickable like an AM bike.
