    I'm 6'2" with a 35.5" inseam. I ride a Large with a 75mm stem and I like the fit.

    Hmmmm....L or XL depending on your torso, arm length, fork travel choice and your preferred position on the bike (aggressive, upright, etc...). The head tube length is 15mm shorter on the size L than the XL, so with your seat height requirements with your inseam - the drop from the saddle to the L will require different plumbing than a size XL would require. Pretty sure you could make both work, but it would be nice for you to demo both sizes.

    Todd Wells is a pro XC racer that is exactly your height with a similar inseam and he rides XL bikes - or size 21" frames. Check out his set ups and specs from Specialized Epic S-Works and Stumpjumper S-Works. Different bikes than the RIP, but pretty close measurements in frames between the XL's from both Niner and Specialized.


    My inseam is a 1/2" less than yours, but I'm a bit taller ( 1 1/2") and ride the XL RIP with zero spacers, 120mm length stem, and the stem is flipped -6 using a 120mm fork.

    Test ride if you can.

    Hmm... It's my usual problem with the bikes being between sizes L and XL. My other bike Giant Trance is XL and it fits me perfect. In the L seat tube wasn't long enough fot my legs. The only think I am affraid of in RIP XL is long top tube... I prefer upright position more than aggressive. Plus I have some lower back issues when my position is too much like XC riders...

    I'm the same exact size and the large with 100mm stem is perfect. I run the talas 34 140/110.

    Nice bike!
    Wish i had the fox 34 talas 29 140, but it is not available here in the philippines yet, settled for the fox 32 talas 29 120. Sigh! The stance and the bike looks meaner and beefier with the fox 34.

    Thanks. I went from Rip to jet 9 RDO, now back to Rip! This set up is hella stable and is awesome in the mountains. My old rip had the 120 talas and I prefer the 140 for the gnarlier drops etc. 120 is good though.

    This is also the reason why i also settled for the fox32 for my rip. 140mm seems to be overkill for my riding style now, recreational trail rider here. Gone are the days of the big hits and drops. Family man here and i guess it is also age that made me lay low in my riding style. Thus fox 32 was enough for me, but i still want that fox34. Just to make my bike look beefier and the stance nicer. LOL!

    Hey, I'm 42 and two young children. Family man as well. If you were riding some trails here in Pisgah you would enjoy the 140. Although there are guys on rigid here that can smoke me!! I love this Rip. Are you running a dropper?

    Nope. I just use an ordinary truvativ seat post. Guess your are right? But 120mm for the trails that i ride here in the philippines is enough. But having a 140 would make the ride more plush, coz i can lower fork pressure to around 30% sag and still have enough travel.
    Ride safe bro. M just a bit younger than you. Cheers

    Gutch, how are the Rovals on AM? I'm not taking any big hits in MN here, but always saw them as a very XC wheel. Any issues?

    I loved your RDO, why did you switch to a RIP?

    Where's your RDO? Haha! I've been looking at getting one.

    You must have legs of superman to go 36t on a 1x10 drivetrain!
    Mine is 32t, 1x10 drivetrain, and i sometimes have to exert a little more on long climbs. But with a 36t i would just walk to the top. Point it down and the 36t would be nice.

    The Rovals rock. Strong as dirt. I went back to the RIP because I like the geometry better and im not an endurance racer at elite level. I wanted a bike that I could travel with anywhere and ride any terrain. I also wanted more travel up front. A gentlemen in CA just recieved my RDO.

    32 is too small for me. I was considering 38 but that would have definitely been overkill. I feel 36 is perfect for the trails we have down here in South Florida.

    ..............Thanks Glutch

    Very nice, I'm not a racer either, so I've been toying with lightening up the RIP a little, and sticking with it. Good info!
