    RM Switch S1 sizing question

    Bikesmart has this model on sale for $1299. The thing is the only size they offer is 19.5. The bike is probably too big for me. My height is 6' with a 33 inseam and I just wanted to get some verification on sizing. The standover height are stated as 860mm or close to 34".

    I think it will be okay. I'm running an 18" (medium) 2005 Switch and I'm 5'11 with a 31" inseem. The medium fits me pretty good. For you, I'd say you'd want a medium if you're doing mostly stunts but if you want to trail ride it too then a 19.5" (large) is probably the way to go.

    I probably shouldn't be answering this post, since I've barely ridden my Switch SL (fork issues), however, I'm 6'0" with a 34.5 inseam, and the Large (19.5) seems to fit me well. I know more next week.

    I'm 6"1 and I have the 2006 Switch 2.0 in the 18. It fits me well, a little on the small side, but I do mostly hucks and freeride, so I like it. I think the 19.5 would be fine for you. Awesome frame! Great bike!

    The S1 was likely the heaviest Switch for 2005. I'd guess it's right about 40lbs.
