Any TALL 9.8 Owners out there
I'm 6'2 with a 36" inseam and ride an XL 9.8, I'm wondering what other 9.8 owners are riding? I'm starting to suspect my frame might be too big but fear a Large might end up being too small. Any input would be appreciated
I am 6'1" with a 35" inseam.
I do not have the 9.8. Although Trek tried to put me on as XL Klein Palomino.
I do need a 410mm seatpost with my L and I use a 110mm stem with riser. It is comfy.
Everyone that sees my Palomino or Mantra thinks that the seat is too high.
I am told that my Haro SS Werx is a large. It looks HAAAYOUGE and kind of feels it.
I still think that a bike should be too small rather than too big.
A freind is 6'2" and rides a medium hardtail Klein and large Palomino.
If you already have the XL keep it. Try to find someone with the Large to try it out before you make a switch. Or get a used large and a slightly larger stem, keep the XL and swap parts over. If it doesn't work out resell it. SSers love the 9.8 for it's stiffness.
