    Tracer 275

    Thinking about replacing an 09 tracer vp 1(medium) with a 275, not sure about size. What are the standover heights of the 275 (small and medium) compared with the mk1 vp sizes? I'm 5'7" with 30" inseam. Also, does the small have a yoke brace at the toptube/seattube join? Smalls in 09 didn't but my medium did, and was quite useful for dropper cablr routing. Last, just on looks, had a raw before but thinking black chrome this time. How does this compare for durability and wear?

    I'm 5'6" with a 27" inseam and I'm riding a small 275 and I'm pretty comfortable on it. The standover directly under the nose of the saddle (which is the lowest point) is 27" but 4" in front of the bottom bracket it's 29", so it slopes up quickly.
    The small does have the yoke brace but it's close welded so I don't know how usefull it'll be for cable routing; the frame does have a hole low on the seat tube for routing one of the dropper posts (don't know which) up through the seat tube so if your chosen post has a cable coming out of the bottom of the post it's a very clean routing.

    I've been on my 275 for about 2 months and its a great bike. You should a solution do it. The bike is set up to run a Reverb Stealth seat post.
