    Racer-X Sizing

    Anybody out there riding (and loving) a medium Racer-X 100 that is 6 feet tall? I seem to be in between medium and large and would prefer a smaller bike if possible. Thanks in advance from a nervous Moots YBB switcher.

    Just for reference, I'm 5'10" and ridng a Medium RX100. I feel it fits really well and think it would fit well if I were an inch or so taller. You are welcome to ride mine if you are in the TN area.

    6'1 on lg with 100mm stem.
    The large rx 100 is showing alot of seatpost. I felt like I was headed over the bars using a 120mm on descents. If the top tube were an inch shorter, I'd go back to the 120 stem, but I'd probably be exposing even more seatpost.

    Thanks for the replies and the offer Asahi. Really nice, but I live in NoCal. I think I am a large after these, and the other sizing threads. Have a goodie.

    I'm 5'11" riding a 23" HH100x which is really close to the RX100. I'm always in between sizes. I'm running a 90mm stem with about 1.25" worth of stack. Seatpost jacked up pretty far.

    I'm almost 6'1" and run a large frame (100mm.) My friend is a tad shorter and decided to move from an 80mm medium to a 100mm large. I can't imagine being comfortable on a medium, but I like a larger cockpit.

    Does Titus still demo bikes? One ride on mine was all my friend needed to decide to buy the larger size. I'd certainly try to ride both before buying if you really are between sizes.

    The nearest Titus dealer to me is Roaring Mouse in San Francisco. I tried both sizes and they let me demo a large for 24 hours. I am a large without question and I now begin the agonizing wait for my frame. I feel like a knuckle head for waiting so long (Moots YBB rider). Anybody looking for a Titus in the San Francisco area should hook up Chris at Roaring Mouse. Best LBS around. Thanks for the help.
