    Inbred sizing?

    Hi I'm 5ft 6in tall and I'm trying to decide if I should go for a 14 or 16in 26in vertical dropout frame?
    I've noticed that the top tubes run a bit long. I will be using this bike for rocky, rooty, technical trails. Any suggestions?

    Don't know if this will help. I am about the same size and went with the 16 and a short stem. It's not done yet but I will post after I get it built.

    I ended up ordering the 16in. It hasn't arrived yet. Biker386 how's the build going?

    Currently waiting on a carbon fork I got off eBay. Not sure what brakes I'm going with thinking shimano xt. Mostly waiting on the funds to finish it. I have another bike, full susspention, the geometry for the inbred matches it and it fits me great. That's why I got the 16". Hope this helps a bit more and good luck with your build.

    I have a 16" 26 Inbred and I'm 5'6" and it feels great.
