    Sizing advice?

    I'm planning on getting an Inbred 29er and having trouble deciding between a 18" or 19.5"

    Me: 5.11 - 6 175lbs 31-32 inseam long arms

    AND... I have issues with hand numbness that seem to come more from back & shoulder / armpit nerves rather than carpel tunnel (although I think I may have a little of both)

    I plan on setting the bike up SS with a 100mm front shock, and my first inclination was to get a 19.5 and use 50-70mm stem?


    advice is appreciated! thanks!

    If you want to use that short a stem, the 19.5 would be better.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
