    Quick poll: What size 2010 MC Flight 29er would you think I'd need?

    Me: 6'2, 185lb, 37.8" inseam, long arms

    I'm 99% certain that I'll need a 21" for my long inseam and long arms. But, I have no prior MTB experience and the LBS doesn't have any in stock. So, I'm looking for help from those around my size with the same bike.

    Thanks.

    I'm 6' and just bought a 19" Monocog Flight. I agree that 21" would most likely be the best fit for you.

    A single speed rigid as your first MTB? Man you're hardcore! I'm enjoying my Flight but I've got a ways to go before I can ride all the trails that I do on my D660. Right now I just use it for easy stuff.
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Ha! Not really.

    I'm actually a road triathlete looking for something low maintenance to use in the off-season and bad weather. I figure the single speed will fit the bill nicely. It also fits the bill of being fairly inexpensive. And, one of the reasons I'm considering the Flight, in particular, is the fact that it can "easily" be converted to a 1x9 if the single speed turns out to be too much for me & my local terrain.

    Thanks for the sizing info.

    Yep 21 inch for you.
    I have a 34inch inseam and ride a 19inch cog with the seat post fully extended in fact I have a 400mm post for a little bit more than the standard post would let me have.

    I'm 5' - 11" and ride a 19" MC with a short stem. Would definitely go 21"
    26FS & 29Rigid... best of both worlds
