    15" or 17" Dawg?

    Im 5' 7.5" with a 30.5" inseam and looking to get an 04 Dawg frame. Would you suggest the 15" or the 17"? Only difference I see is the length in toptube and of course standover height.

    15" has 22" toptube and a 32" standover

    17" has 23" toptube and a 32.6" standover

    I'm 5' 7" on a good day and I got the 17". I like a little larger frame though, a bit more room in the cockpit. I might have bought a 16 if they made one but I think a 15 would be a bit on the small side. The LBS owner I got mine from is my same height and he rides a 17" Bear. Same as a Dawg, just the previously used name. If you can, test ride them both.
    Try to pick out anything by itself and you find it connected to the entire universe.

    2004 Dawg 15's only measure 14 inches to the top of the seattube! I couldn't get full leg extension even with a 400mm seatpost,which looked pretty damn weak stuck out that far,and my inseam is about the same as yours.I'd get the 17 and put on a shorter stem to get comfy.

    I have been told that 2005's have corrected that problem,but I'd want to see someone actually measure theirs.
