    Rumblefish Sizing Advice

    Hi All,

    I'm interested in getting a Rumblefish I (or II), I am buying the bike used, and I won't be able to demo it.

    So my question is, what size would you recommend for me?

    Height: 6'5"
    Weight: 150
    Inseam: 34"

    Yes I'm super tall and thin. I'd go demo a bike at a local shop but I'm yet to find one that has an XL or XXL to demo, and I want to do more than ride it around the shop. The bike I'm on right now is 20" and it is too small, my neck/back ache after every ride.

    Any thoughts/advice would be really helpful!

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,

    I think you need an XL (21") Rumblefish. I recently sold my 21" Rumblefish Elite and I'm 6'4", 210, w/34" inseam.

    You'd be good on the 21".

    I ride a 21" RF2. I'm 6'1" w/34" inseam. I could have gone 19" and been good as well. As it is I shortened the stem/widened the bars and it's all good.

    I have a friend who's 6'4" and also rides a 21" RF(stock). He's very happy too.

    If you consistently ride stuff like what's in your avatar you're going to be stoked with your new bike.

    If you start feeling cramped try a wider bar.
