    racer X 29r size

    I am looking at the Motolite and also a racer X 29r frame. What size frame for a 5ft10 person on the racer x 29? I would be a med on the ML with the 23.25 top tube....Would I be a small on the Racer x29?

    If you want a TT length of ~ 23.25 inches, you would, yes.
    Shop TT length, and geometry, not stated 'size'...that's my motto. I'm ~ 5'8" (in the AM, with a straight back), and a SM RX29 fits me fine.

    HH100-to RX29

    Contact Xterraracer. He rides a Hammerhead and a RX29.
    He has put about 6 or 7 people that he trains with on Racer X's and 29ers in the last year.

    He's headed to the Breck 100 with his RX29er shortly.

    Out the wazoo

    that's all we ride. But almost all hardtails-1x9 single even rigid.
    I have few Firelines including my demo.

    If I had any Racer Xs they'd be sold by now.
    How about an Evolve or 429 demo?

    Thanks..... I went a head and bought the Motolite local here for less than a grand. Couldn't pass it up. I sold my Rip 9 Niner. I didn't like the feel of the slow large wheel up front in technical trails that I ride all the time. This is why I went back to a 26 longer travel Titus..
    Not sure if it's the right ay to go. I am gonna keep this one and maybe put a 29r in the garage later on.
