    Nervous about my sizing decision.

    Of course I'm excited now that I just grabbed the current Strive 8.0 deal but everything has left me doubting sizing. I measured my current bike with much older geo, I read EVERYTHING regarding sizing I could find and I had decided on the Large. I called Canyon talked to a rep and was advised to go XL. I'm 6'2"ish with a 34" inseam and the recommended Canyon sizing per the calculator is Large, I went against what the calculator said and followed the advice of the rep. Now here I am post order placement with my fingers crossed that the XL is the right choice. Ugh

    I'm 5'11" on a large Strive, and it fits great. I am 99% sure you made the right decision with the XL, as I can't imagine someone 3" taller would ride the same bike as me. If anything, you can put a 40mm stem on the bike and push the saddle forward a bit, but I don't think you'll have to.

    BTW, congrats on the new bike, you'll absolutely love it. I've had mine on 30-mile high country epics all the way down to techy St. George and Fruita riding, and I've got no complaints.

    Thanks for the reply, it definitely sounds like you're enjoying your Strive. You gave me back a bit of confidence that I made the right choice, now I just wait.........

    I'm also 6'2" and I received my XL Strive a few days ago. It fits fine. Only issue is I wish the bars were a little higher. A size large would be worse.
