    Dean Bike Frames

    I am considering buying a new frame from Dean. I am considering the Dean Colonel, but not sure what size would be appropriate. I am 6'-0" with relatively long arms and legs. What is everyone else riding and how tall are you?

    Over all height is not a factor in a custom frame. At six foot you could have a 30 inch inseam or 40 inch in which case you'll have different saddle to bb dimensions. If you're getting a Dean, they will ask you for several dimensions and custom build a frame to fit you. Good luck.

    Was looking for a used frame. Called dean and they said most likely a large would be the best.

    Large sounds right

    I'm 5'9" with a 32" inseam and I ride a medium, probably could do a large, but it would be close and I prefer to have a little more height to stand over than not.

    Fatter than most.

    Thanks solo...just the info I was looking for. Will have to compare numbers from large frame to current bike and see if it compares.
