Or a shift for that matter.
Thinking about adding a full suspension bike to the garage and I've been pleased with my Mary SS so I'm looking at both the Shift R5 and Sonix as possible new rides. I have some concerns on the sizing of these frames. I think the 21" Shift would be fine (I'm 6'4") but I'm interested in the Sonix as well.
I like the single pivot Shift frame design but I need to make sure Marz, can get me a stiffer spring for the fork before I would consider buying it (hopped on an 18" at the shop and sagged the fork about 50-60%).
I had seen a 20" Sonix at the local shop a few months ago but it looked too small and I really wasn't in the market at the time so I didn't try it on. Now that I'm in the market and looking of course that bike has been sold. Looking at the geometry chart everything looks almost the same for the 21" Shift and the 20" Sonix.
So the point of this post.. Is anyone in the 6'4" 210lbs size range riding either of these frames? Can you offer any input on the fit, ride, etc? I found a great review on the Sonix but the guy was 125lbs so that doesn't really tell me much about how it works for, and fits, a larger rider.
Thanks in advance. Currently waiting for a call from the local shop to see if they can even get either of these for me from the dist.
