    Dakot Sport Frame Size

    Ive checked out some specialized and and treks and my frame height is about 17.5-18

    but wen i went to see the Jamis Dakota Sport they only offered it in 17 and 19 in. Do sizes differ and how woudl i know which one i am..by the way i'm about 5'10 and my legs are pretty long.

    I'm the same height as you and I would be on a 19in, although I don't think I have long legs, My inseam is 34in. Go more on the reach of the bike not on the height, It's easier to move the seat up and down than to replace stems.

    i rode both the 19 in felt a little tall and gave me like 1.5" of clearance. The 17 gave me like 2-3. I ended up ordering the 17.
    And does anyone know what Jamis' 17" would be compared to trek's or specialized frames?
