    Bandit 26 Size reccomendation

    Hey all,

    Thinking about purchasing myself a Bnadit 26"

    I'm looking for feedback from some other talle bandit riders. I'm just over 6'2" with a 34-36 inch inseam. Any suggestions from others riders with a similar build? Large or XL?

    Also, my riding background is DH with much aggressive trail riding.

    I'm coming from a large Giant Trance X if that has any influence,

    I have the same background, height and 34 inch inseam and ended up going for the large. I still think a 24 inch TT (as opposed to 23.5) would be perfect but the XL was just too tall, especially for running a reverb.

    Fantastic bike though.

    Same here. 6'2" shorter inseam but longer torso and would have loved a 24 inch TT. I thought the XL would be too tall so went large. I went up a smidge on my stem length to 70 and it has been fine...probably not as stretched out as one would want for a long XC race, but fun for play riding, which is mostly what I do.
