    and the wait begins NBD (new bike day)

    Just put down the money on a New 2009 Specialized StumpJumper Elite XXL. I'm 6'7 and 235lbs and cannot wait to have a bike that fits.......no more unreasonably high seatposts and threadless extentions on the stem...... see below for what I needed to do with a 21" frame..........hehe....I cannot wait to hit the trails in a week or so.

    Want to hear an interesting fit? 6' 2.5" with that same 36" inseam. God took your legs and stuck them on Websters torso. I can totally hear ya on the funky things you gotta do to get a bike fit.

    Enjoy the new ride man, it looks awesome!

    Man that Schwinn looks like it's got 20" bmx wheels on it. That new bike looks great.

    Wow, great looking bike. Interesting that you went with a 26", at 6-3 with 34" inseam I have found 29s just seem to fit me better.

    i have the same basic bike and it has treated me well. Of course i am not 6-7 i am only 5-10 so mine is a lot smaller. I would ride it more if i had not been bitten by the single speed bug, Enjoy the ride
