    New Ride

    I am just getting into mounting biking after several years off from BMX racing. I just acquired a gary fisher hifi pro 29er. My question is it's 16" and I am 5' 11 and from what i have researched this should be really small for me. But i have ridden it several times and it feels really comfortable. Any ideas?

    My first idea is check the size again. The bike doesn't come in 16. It's either 15.5 or 17.5. The 15.5 is tiny though. At 5'11" you'll probably fit best on a 17.5 or 19, depending on how you're built.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    You just came off a bmx bike so the smaller bike might just feel more familiar to you.
