    Help with Voodoo Canzo Choice!!!!

    Hello,

    After much research I was going to order a Voodoo Canzo and build it for speed and quickness. Of all the 29ers that I have ridden a 19 inch frame seems to be the right fit. As luck would have it the Canzo only comes in 18 and 20 inches. I am 6 foot tall, 167Lbs. Does anyone have experience witht he Canzo that would help me make my choice?

    Thanks!

    I'd go with the 20", but to be sure check the effective top tube on the bikes you've ridden that fit well and compare that to the Canzo. I'm 5'11" and fealt like our 18" Canzo was a little small.

    I'm 5'10" and on the 18"

    I'd go with the 20" if I were you.

    I had a 20" and the same height as you with a 32" inseam. I have since sold it but I think it was to big for me. I ended up with a 70mm stem and never really felt one with it. I really would try to hunt someone down to test for yourself. I'm not sure where your from but know two peeps here that have both 20" my old one and 18" too...

    I'm 6' and went with the 18" as the tt length was similar to my jabber
    I run it with a 100mm stem and it fits great!

    I just built my Canzo up. I am 5'10" with a 31" inseam and I fit well on the 18" with a 90-100mm stem and zero offset seatpost. I think the 20" would be a better fit, but like others said, at least check the ETT of your favorite rides.

    20" would prob be the better fit, but as others said go with whatever size has a closer ETT as the 19" bikes you have ridden.

    Fit it by getting the same effective top tube as other bikes that fit. Choosing fit based on your height, inseam, weight, or bike standover is silly. ETT takes into account the length of your torso. Every bike lets you raise or lower the saddle to fit your legs. I have never seen a bike with an adjustable top tube to fit your torso.

    Yes, I own a Canzo. Six foot three, thirty-seven inch inseam, built like an orangutan - all arms and legs, very short torso. This is a 20 inch bike, chosen for the 24.5 inch effective top tube.
