I'm trying to size a 2009 Gary Fisher HiFi Deluxe (26 inch wheel) between a Small (16 inch) or medium (17.5 inch) size. I'm 5' 6" (168 cm) and have a 31 in inseam (79 cm). Pant inseam length is 30 in.
Riding style: I ride the local trails near seattle. Twisty turny, usually wet root infested stuff as well a longer rockier rides in the mountains with occasional big fire road climbs. I don't do any big drops, but I would like to become faster on downhill sections.
Previous bikes: Specialized stumpjumper FSR 2002 medium 22.6 in Top tube, Bontrager Privateer medium 22.6 in top tube.
The Geometry is listed on the Fisher website here: http://fisherbikes.com/bike/archivemodel/480
On a side note.
However, the Chart lists the small as a 16" but the sticker on the actual bike says 15.5" did they change the size of the small and not change the chart?
The center to top seatpost measurement is 16".
