    Tall HollowPoint riders...what size do you ride?

    I found my LBS has picked up Iron Horse as one of their bike lines. They had a medium Iron Horse on the floor, the Expert. It was the trail bike model, with a Manitou Black on the front.

    The frame said "medium," the sticker on the wheel said "19.5" which seemed wrong. However, sitting on the bike felt just about right. I'm 6'2", so usually a medium is too small for me, so I thought it was weird the bike felt like it fit. Did the bike shop have the size wrong on their sticker?

    Question: anyone know the top tube lengths of the Hollowpoint? I can't download their catalog off of their site.

    One more question: what size bike did you choose, and how tall are you?

    Overall, I'll be using it for aggressive XC - roots, rocks, big log piles, some light jumping (less than 2'). I weigh 215lbs.

    Thanks for any input on the size issue.

    I have an '03. I'm 6'1 with a 33.5" inseam. I picked a medium because I liked the top tube length. But as a result I've got over an inch of spacers under my (high rise, 25) stem (flat bars though) and I've got a bunch of seat post showing. I could have gone Large, but the TT length + 90mm effective stem length suits me.

    ETT for the Medium is 23.4" and for the Large is 24.2".

    5'11"/31" on medium (19.5)

    If I were three inches taller, I'd try a large before deciding.

    6 feet here and ride a medium. I think a large would feel huge.

    I'm 6' with a 33.5" inseam. I think I fall inbetween sizes but went with the medium although I have a lot of seat tube showing as well.
