    Sizing for YBB 29er

    Hi,
    I have shortlisted to build myself a YBB 29er finally, but need some info on the sizing. Please help, thanks.
    I am 6 feet tall with relatively long torso, 200lbs, and my inseam measures about 32".
    What size of the YBB should I get ? This is the first time I get 29er and am not sure if it is the same for 26ers measurement.
    When I am on 26er I ride HT up to 19", would it be better for me to buy 18" 29er for better standover clearance, and using a offset Moots seatpost?
    Any other advices are appreciated.
    Thanks everyone.

    I'm 5'11 and ride a 19.
    The 2012 29ers from Moots will have better standover from a redesign. Stay tuned for Interbike for release for the new design.

    measure the toptube length of the bike you have (26 or 29), and get a moots (or ANY bike) with the same TT length. Inseam is the second thing to look at, and if needed you can get the moots done custom too.
    So not that it matters, but I'm 5'10, 32 inseam and have a 20" moots, but I like/need a LONG toptube. also a large on the rocky altitude 29er
    good ski/bike deals at www.mntlion.com

    My life is better than your vacation.

    Hi, I was wondering what the optimal fit is for a YBB, everything I've read seems to lean towards a 100mm stem and set back post. Is this because the YBB needs rear weight bias to work optimally?

    The Moots uses a set back post becasue the seat tube angle is pretty slack, 74 degress. Because of this the rider will be more forward on the frame which requires the seat to be moved back to get the rider in proper position.

    The bike is designed around a 100mm stem, but handles great with a 90mm as well as a 110mm stem.

    I use a straight post on my YBB because of fitting reasons and have no problems with the YBB action not working. I think many people use the layback post to get a better fit, not to get more action out of the YBB.
