    Sette Reken - 18" or 20"

    I ride XC and around town and I am looking at getting a Sette Reken frame. I am 6' and was wondering if an 18" or 20" frame was a more appropriate choice. If it makes a difference I will be pairing the frame with either an 80mm or 100mm fork. Here are the specs/geometry:

    Thanks.

    I would be going with the 20" frame all the way. They call it an XL but the ETT length is only a little over 24 inches. If you have long legs with a pant inseam of 34 or greater then the 18 might be better. The bigger frame I also think will feel a little better coming down hills.

    This might be a little late, but I recently bought a Reken 18". I am 6' with a 32" inseam. The bike is perfect once you get used to the short rear triangle. Moreover, 100mm forks make the bike chopper a little bit, but the extra rake helps for the long, clear stretches.
