    Chromag Wideangle Sizing and Fork Travel

    I found a local 2019 Chromag wideangle frame in size M/L. Per their website I am between sizes at 6' tall. the M/L is for 5-7 to 6-0 and the large is for 5-11 to 6-3. I am wondering what sizes people ride? Looking to run a 70mm stem.
    I am planning to swap a 130mm fork from another bike. The website recommends 140mm to 160mm. What travel do people typically run on this frame?
    I ride a 2019 Trek Stache 19.5" which I fit well.

    Better Late than never?!?! Also just sold my Stache and going to Chromag, no certain reason just wanted something new and different.

    I just purchased a Wideangle frame after comparing about 6-7 Hardtails geo in a spreadsheet, I am 5'7 and a medium won out for me. Honestly never even considered 27.5 before but sure its going to be super fun build and ride.

    Did you ever pull trigger, I would worry on the Wideangle a 130mm fork might put bottom bracket too low and the 70mm stem is just unneeded with a 75 degree seattube angle and that is unsaggged on a hardtail.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!

    I have a 2019 Wideangle ML frame built up with 150mm fork and 50mm stem. I'm 5'10" and the bike fits me well. I recently ordered a Kingdom Vendetta ti custom hardtail and went with similar geo to the Chromag - 65 degree HTA, 76 degree STA, 620mm eff TT, 450mm reach. Once I get the Vendetta, I'll likely be selling the Wideangle frame.Chromag Wideangle Sizing and Fork Travel-chromag-wideangle.jpg
