    907 frame fit question

    I'm looking at purchasing a 907 frame and was hoping for a little sizing help from those of you that have ridden one. I normally ride a medium (17" ish) frame, but comparing some numbers it looks like the small (15") 907 has about the same top tube as I'm used to (23"). I've also ridden a 18" pugsley (23.5" TT)- which works, but only with a shorty stem. It seems that I should size down to a small for the 907- what do you guys think?

    I ride medium FS bikes (17.5") and I bought a medium 907, fits perfectly for me. I would go with the same size as your other bikes and it should work for you.

    Your logic seems sound as long as your seat post doesn't get to long. I think you should talk to the guys at Chain Reaction. They are your best resource for how their bikes fit.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    Bdundee- You're right on both accounts. That frame for sale is pretty cool, and not all mediums are the same. I think that might be part of my problem. I'm used to riding a size medium, but in this case there's a good chance I'd be better off with a small.

    Sryanak- Good point about the seat post. I'll have to check how much I have left on the post on my 17" and see if that will work with a 15". If that works I'll probably go with a size small. Which is the size of that sweet frame listed above...hmmm. I might have to take another look at that ebay listing.

    I believe its a small, there is a thread on here about called Cannondale fat bike or something on that order. You might want to check out the Fatbacks as well. I have the 16" which actually measures out to almost a 17" seat tube with a 23.2 effective TT.

    I ride a 17.5 specialized stumpjumper SS
    I love my 15 inch 907
    I was a little worried it would be too small but it just feels right

    I am 5'10 going on 5'9 with a 32 inch inseam
    I am running a 400mm seatpost with 100mm insertion
    I still ran out of standover height as Bob witnessed in the bumpy bog

    That's a good looking collection on that roof rack.

    Thanks to both of you for the feedback. It led to me spending $600! I'm the proud owner of the "custom" small 907 that was in the above thread and ebay auction. Woohoo!

    Will do! Although it may take awhile. I still need to find a wheelset and a few other parts that I don't have laying around.

    I ride a small pugs and small 907. The top tube length is what I like. I use 450mm seat posts. Keeps a little more in the frame. Take a look at the amount of extension in this pic:
    Regular bikes i ride mediums.
