    Sizing help

    I am debating on pulling the trigger on a new Strive 8.0 vs a Capra. My question is on sizing. I am 6'4" with a 34 inseam, the canyon site is recommending a Large, which seems small. I have always ridden a XL and currently ride a 2016 XL stumpjumper. Any other tall riders out there riding a L or XL? I'd also be curious if you have any other insight between the two bikes?

    I'm 6'2 and ride a Large Neuron, if I was any taller it would have to be XL.

    Hope that helps in some way.

    I'm 5'11" and ride a large Strive CF 8.0. I can't imagine at 6'4" you would ride the same bike.... get the XL for sure.

    The Neuron is oddly sized. It's about a half size off of most bikes. I'm 6'2" and my kid's medium Neuron is a surprisingly decent fit for me.

    My XL Strive is the right size for me. At 6'4", you definitely need an XL.

    I think that's how all Canyon bikes are. I'm 5'9" and that puts me between a medium and a large for a Salsa Beargrease. But it's just barely into the medium suggestion via canyon. (If i was 5'7", they'd recommend the small)

    Hi, I just checked sizings, and you are definately an XL, and well into XL territory - itís not marginal.

    Donít go on inseam - measuring it accurately is fraught with error, and itís relevance tobike fit is over rated (especially by their sizing calculator it seems)

    Seat tube height is not more important than reach
