    sizing advice for an El Chiquillo

    looking at going back to a hardtail and really like to look of the el chiquillo. Being 5ft 8 not sure if the 15 inch or 17inch would work (used to ride a 16inch yeti ARC). anyone out there my size and riding either of these frame sizes.

    I live in the Highlands of Scotland so there is no way of getting to the local dealer (its down in England somewhere!!)...


    cheers

    Conventional fitting says a 17" is a good bet. Drop sherwood an email and he'll set you up. Biggest concern is your inseam, short legs, you'll need a longer top tube, longer legs, you'll need a shorter top tube.

    When you do call Sherwood, give him as many details on your possible build and your measurements as you can. The more info, the better.
