    Bike size question

    I am thinking of getting a GF X - CAL and am wondering what size to get. 19" or 21"?
    I am 6"2 with an inseam of 35". My problem is I have to order this bike from the lbs. I do have a 21" rig but question if I would not be better off on a 19".
    Thanks

    You could probably make both the L and the XL work (stem length, set-back seatpost, etc...) depending on which size you buy. I'm 6'3" with a 35" inseam and have all XL size bikes (Fisher 293, KM and a Dos). Believe it or not, the Fisher XL feels the "smallest" too me when riding it when compared to the Dos and the KM. Being a "tweener" sized rider, it comes down to personal preference and how you like your bike to feel/perform.

    Any chance you can find an L Fisher to toss a leg over before making your decision? How does the XL sized Rig feel to you? What length stem are you using and how does the cockpit feel?

    Suffice it to say - you have a good dilemma. That being, either way you go it will work for you and you will be able to dial in the cockpit with the stem and seatpost choice.
