    Spider comp sizing and build weight questions.

    Hi. I am real interested in the spider comp. I am 5'11" and ride a large sultan and highball, but I noticed the top tube for the spider is pretty long. Just wondering what most spider comp riders my size were riding.

    Also, what kind of build weights are you guys getting. I am planning on using xx1, ks lev, Chinese carbon rims on hope hubs.

    Thanks all,

    John

    I am 5'11 as well. I ride a medium. Full XTR. Fox Float 140 (140mm fork rules on this frame) Easton Haven carbon bar and post, Mavic SLR wheels, Conti X King 2.4 tires. 26.3lbs
    I need a dropper post.

    Your build should be close depending on fork and tires.

    You will love this bike.

    I ride a medium built up with Stan's Crest (I am 160 and most of the time don't crush them), XT pretty much everywhere, Reba up front, Easton handlebars and stem, and it is 25lbs 2 oz. Use different lightweight Specialized S-Works tires. SL2 eggbeater (Crank Bros) pedals included in weight.

    Contemplating on getting a Spider Comp 29 frame. I am 5'7 and currently riding a Superfly 100 medium. What size should fit for me if I get the Spider Comp 29?

    I'd say small, as they tend to fit pretty big- small has a 22.5" top tube and 16" seat tube.

    All. THanks for the info. I ordered a medium with a 150 pike. I have been in Germany for five weeks and return Saturday. I will start building it up then.
