    Sette Derro 2.0 vs. Fezzari Wiki Peak

    Older conservative rider, last bike Cannondale F-900 (1997). Want to get full suspension mountain bike. Ordered a Sette in Med. frame, have only 1.5 inches of top tube clearance with no sag. Bike otherwise seems to fit well. Looking at the WikiPeak specs, stand over height is more comfortable, about 2 inches greater in a medium frame. Bikes appear reasonably similar in price and quality. Already have the Sette, but can send back. Is the clearance something upon which to make the decision? Thanks for any comments.

    according to opinions on here, zero top tube clearance is even ok (never ridden one myself though).

    Standover doesn't come up on the trail. Why not? Because you get on and off a bike by first stepping on a pedal. Do that and see how much clearance you have. Trails are not flat like a bike shop floor so standing with both feet flat on the ground is rare
    Usually it's one foot on the higher ground side and lean the bike as you stop.
