    New question here. online purchase: Fly Team stand over height...?

    a challenge of online purchases is that can't test ride the bike. there is no LBS that carrys Motobecane,so i must order thorugh http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...e_fly_team.htm

    I'm 5'10" so would the Fly Team's STAND OVER HEIGHT of 30.5" for the 20" frame too tall for me to do xc race (sport) with? the frame sizes really varys with each company. like a Marin's 17" seems like a Motobecane 20" which seems like a Kona 19"

    my son's 5'9" and races with a 18" Fly Team bike (he loves it!, frame's 3.3#s, bikes 22#s with time atac, all for only $1700 total), but that 18" frame feels a bit small for me (with existing oem stem, i have six assorted stems in my garage that i can choose from), but would the 20' frame with 30.5" stand over height be a bit too tall? The Motobecane sales rep. (at Sea Otter) said they've got 6' riders on 18" bike (hmmmm.)

    currently i race a Kona steel hardtail, 18" (a bit on small side, but bigger than the 18" Fly Team), but i want to build a super light hard tail (goal: low 19#s with time pedals)

    my inseam measures 31~31.5"
