    What size do you recommend...

    Since you guys have a feel for the redline geometry Ill ask you....

    Im getting either a d440 or d660 29er's ASAP

    Ive found a good deal on a 17'' frame but im 6'2'' 185-215lbs when im muscled up.lol.......

    I know its probley too small but i figured since Im a pretty good bmxer (street/park/dirt jumper I will feel ok on a 17'' frame.....

    What do you guys think,

    Thanks for your opinions.....

    Maybe they think you should test ride them both, especially since Redline's are not mail-order.

    Having said that, the 17 is probably going to be way too small. I'm 5'11' and ride a 19" mono9. It's also notable that the geometries of both the D440 and D660 are slightly different.

    Edit:

    If you can't test-ride one, go with a TT length close to what you're used to riding, should get you in the ballpark.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    There is no substitute for test riding a bike, but I think a 17" will be way too small. No matter how good the deal is, get a bike that fits. BTW, I'm 5'11" and ride a 19".

    I am 6'4" and ride a 21". I had to put riser bars and change the stem. At 6'2", I would stay away from the 17". But thats just me.
    Good luck.

    Just to add another point of data.

    I'm 5'12" (just a hair below 6'0").

    I'm riding the 19" and its about right. I bet you could be a couple of inches taller, and still fit the 19", so I would recommend at least the 19" if not the 21"
