    GF Rumblefish sizing advice

    Hi All,

    I'm interested in getting my first Gary Fisher (Rumblefish I). I am buying the bike used, and I won't be able to demo it.

    So my question is, what size would you recommend for me?

    Height: 6'5"
    Weight: 150
    Inseam: 34"

    Yes I'm super tall and thin. I'd go demo a bike at a local shop but I'm yet to find one that has an XL or XXL to demo, and I want to do more than ride it around the shop. The bike I'm on right now is 20" and it is too small, my neck/back ache after every ride.

    Any thoughts/advice would be really helpful!

    I would guess (just a guess) you would want the XXL. I'm 5'11 on a 19-Large.

    You might try posting in the Trek forum too, since I think the Rumblefish basically went unchanged after being rebadged Trek in 2011. Might be some taller riders there that could give you better advice.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    I'm 6'2" on an XL Rumblefish and wouldn't want to ride anything smaller. I have found competitive cyclist's fit calculator to be a reasonable starting point for sizing. It recommended a 24.7-25.1 in top tube for me and the Rumblefish has a 24.7. I ended up having to put a 110mm stem on it to feel right.
