    Sizing help for Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 (2015 model)

    I'm 6"2 with a 34" inseam.

    Wondering what would be a better fit for me: large or XL

    Thanks!

    I'm not on a Altitude but a T-bolt and a 6'0" with at 32" inseam the large fits me perfect. I would lean towards a XL if I was you. Any shop close that has one in stock you could throw a leg over?

    Yep, you'd likely be happier on an XL, otherwise the cockpit may feel a bit cramped, especially with a dropper post with no setback. I'm 6'-1" with long arms, I'm on a Large Tbolt and if I was any taller I'd want the XL size.

    I am 6'1" and have an Altitude 750 MSL in L. I could go with an XL also. With your size I believe you would be happier with XL size.

    6" exactly with a short inseam (dunno what).... I'd go for the XL. I'm on an L with a 50 mm stem, and wouldn't really want to go any shorter.

    Rocky's are small, get the XL. The extra wheelbase will be beneficial on an enduro style bike.

    XL or XXL (if you want to go stubbier on the stem).

    I'm your size, and on a Large Instinct (with 70mm stem) - when I get the chance, I'm moving to an XXL so I can run a 50mm stem. The seat tube length won't be problematic (especially if you're running a Reverb Stealth dropper - or a similar 435mm or shorter option if you want 150mm drop), you can steepen the seat tube by running the seat farther forward (or neutral with a non-layback post), and run a shorter stem - all that would put the XXL sizing in your range - in terms of sizing out of the box, unquestionably take the XL.

    I'm 6'2" (187cm) and have an XL 2015 Altitude Rally Edition - no way would I go with the Large. I run a 50mm stem and could run a 150mm dropper (bought a 125mm as wasn't able to get 150 at the time).

    Thanks to everyone for their responses. I went with the XL and it fits really well!
