    Pulling the trigger on a hollowpoint

    Just hoping to get a confirmation on sizing the Hollowpoint before I put in my order. I'm 6' and want to confirm that a medium should fit and this would be the 19" on supergo. After reading everything about this bike, I'm ready to buy sight unseen. Thanks in advance for the help.

    That sounds right, although standover would be no problem on the large if you wanted the extra reach.

    FWIW, I'm 6'1" with a 33.5" inseam and ride the 19", but I have lots of seatpost showing and a fat stack of spacers under my 25 rise stem (but using a flat bar, not riser).

    Depending on your extension needs, you should plan on replacing the stock seatpost for something longer to ensure adequate insertion.

    I am 6' and ride a medium. After test riding both, I felt a little too stretched out on the large so went with the medium and got a longer seatpost to make sure I had plenty in the frame. (since I have plenty showing)

    Good job! Medium

    I rode the large or 3 months before I broke it( doesn't have anything to do with size). I'm 6ft and thought it would be fine. I got a Medium frame replacement and it's much, much better. Get the medium and it will be perfect for ya. ~eyeguy
