    Inbred 29 sizing & bar questions

    Hey All, following the sizing guide on the Planet X website (I'm 6'0" with a 32" inseam), I've purchased a size 18 Inbred Limited and a 60mm stem. I've also got a 12 degree back sweep bar that I was planing to use (740mm) however, when I fit the bar and stem on the frame/fork it seems like a really tight cockpit. I realize the bar is shortening it with the back sweep and am considering a different bar. I haven't built the bike yet, as I'm still waiting on wheels, but thought I'd throw this out there and see what others think of the cockpit length. Anyone else my size care to chime in on their set up?

    FWIW, this will be my first 29er and first singlespeed, so I realize things are gonna be different than my 6" full sus 26er. I'll post pics when I start building it next week.

    You may want to look at alt-bars that sweep forward and then back. Consider using the Answer 20/20 which may be a good solution for you. Here is a pic to show the sweep amount. For reference, I am 6' with a 35" inseam on my 19.5" Scandal running a 70mm stem.
