    Hollowpoint sizing advice needed...

    I am still searching for a trail bike frame and have narrowed it down to Hollowpoint as possible choice.

    Sizing question....

    I am 5'11" with a short 31" inseam. Damn these short legs and long torso.

    What is your height and frame size?

    I'm 5' 10" and I don't know my inseam but I want to say 32 just cause thats what it says on my levis. The HP I just purchased yesterday was a small and fits me quite nicely. On every other bike I test rode I was a medium or even between medium and large.

    I think small would be the right size for you.

    I'm 6'1" with a 33.5" inseam. I ride a medium, but with a good amount of seatpost showing and a healthy stack of spacers under my high-rise stem. I could easily fit a large but prefer the TT length of the medium.

    Thanks for the sizing references.

    I am going to call around and see if anyone has built up HP in stock so I can test ride it. I last test rode it on demo and liked the way it rode.

    My decision is down the Azonic Propulsion and the HP.

    Yikes, all these people not much bigger than me on mediums got me scared I screwed up so I went back through the whole measuring process.

    I found out I am 5' 9" not 5' 10" as I said in my post. Somehow I got shorter in the last 10 years... sigh.

    I went throught the wrench science fitting guidelines and they recommended a 17" (bb to seat collar) frame.

    The Small Hollowpoint is exactly 17" BB to seat collar by my measurement... whew.

    Also my inseam is 32" as I guessed.

    Anyway since you are 2" taller than me and in light of all the other posts from people of similar height it looks like maybe you are a medium rather than a small. Still it would be optimal if you could take a short ride on each size to find out for certain which is best.
