    Troll sizing

    copying exactly from the KM thread, i would love to hear some info from other Troll owners on what they are riding.

    Need:
    Height
    Inseem
    Frame choice and how it fits.

    I'm 173cm (or a smide over 5'8", have a 31" inseam, i'd normally run a medium road or mountain bike but i'm torn between the 16 and 18" frame.

    I'd love to hear what you folks are running.

    cheers
    Steve

    I'm 5'6" w/ 29.5" true inseem (crotch to floor)
    I prefer a slightly more upright position, but my arms are probably a touch short like my legs.

    '11 Surly Troll 16" w/90mm stem, standard riser bars, fit is about right
    '11 Surly Pugsley 16" w/90mm stem, Surly Open Bars, fit feels a touch long
    '10 Trek Fuel EX 15.5" w/90mm stem, standard riser bars, fit is perfect
    '05 Kona Coiler DeLux 15" w/70mm stem, standard riser bars, fit is perfect

    Height: 5´9" (176 cm)
    Inseam: 32" (82 cm)

    Troll: 2011, 18"
    Stem: 80 mm
    Bar: Titec J-Bar

    Fits ok. Would not hurt if stem would be shorter.

    I'm 6' with a 30" inseam. I have a very long torso and short arms and legs. I ride the 18" frame and it fits me fine. My only problem is getting the bars high enough as my long torso and short arms give me a normal horizontal reach but a much shorter (2"-3") vertical reach. Even with an uncut steerer I seem to have a "racing" stance. Might have to use a riser stem.

    Also, stand over on the 18" is perfect for me as is the horizontal reach, just wish it had more head tube.
