    Advice: Frame Size for KTM Scarp Comp

    Hi,
    I'm going to buy a KTM Scarp Comp (https://www.ktm-bike.pt/pt/loja/5137...64-detail.html).

    I'm 1,76m and have an inseam of 0,80m.

    My ideal size would be 18".

    According to KTM, I should buy a 19" (https://www.ktm-bikes.at/en/service/frame-size.html).

    I've done a test drive on a 19" frame, and I felt confortable. Nevertheless, I come from a Specialized Crave size M, and side by side the KTM looks like a huge truck.

    It was not possible to try the 17" frame. It's less 20mm on the horizontal top tub.

    Do you think a 19" frame is the right size for me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Paulo

    I'm 6'0" (1.828m) , and I ride a 19" Scarp Prestige (older design). However, I am what I'd consider right at the line for a 19" or 21".
    At 5'9", you would probably be on the smaller size for a 19", but not out of the realm of OK.
