    Spearfish Sizing

    I threw my leg over a L and XL and I'm still not sure what to get. Both felt good, guys at the shop said XL but I still feel undecided. I ride a Large Karate Monkey now so I'm even more thrown off by the XL recommendation

    I'm 6'2"ish with a 35" bike inseam. Anyone else of similar stature that would like to weigh in?

    When I say both felt good, I rode a few blocks of pavement so.....

    I'm 6'4" with a 34" inseam. A few years a go I got an XL Niner and Singular. I rode them for a few years but they felt too large and unweildy. Eventually I sold them and am now on a L Spearfish. I definitely prefer the smaller sizing. If you are a tweener like me (in between recommended sizes) I'd recommend sizing down. Of course you will find just as many people that suggest sizing up, so at the end of the day you will have to just make a call and see how you like it.

    Spearfish Sizing

    I'm 6'4" on an XL with 130mm stem. I wish they made an XXL so I could use a shorter stem and still get my weight forward. Salsa's measurements for SF and Mamasita are the same, but I swear my SF feels 10mm shorter.
