    VF2 Frame Size Help!

    Hi all.
    Im about to order a new VF2 and cant decide on the best frame size for me. As usual im right in the middle of 2 sizes... Medium and Large.
    I am 6' 1/2" tall with a 32.5" inseam.

    Can anyone help?

    I'm about the same, 6'0" w/ 32" inseam and always find myself right in between sizes as well. I'm not certain how the dimensions compare with the VF2 but with my XCL, I went with the medium which works great for me as a trailbike where I ride a little more upright. I run a 90mm stem and a zero offset Thomson post. If you are more into XC, you may want the large so you can stretch out a little more. I'm sure someone with the VF2 will pipe in specifically on that bike. Good luck!

    YouŽre in the limit of both. Though decision but I would go with the medium size.
    One thing to consider is that this bike has a taller standover height, which means the bottom bracket is a little bit higher than in other bikes (as far as I know, and also compared to a Gary Fisher I own).
    Also the seat tube is longer in this bike, for example, I have a Medium size and the seat tube is 19" long, which would qualify for a L size in most other brands.

    Thanks for all the input Guys.
    I have ordered a Meduim, which should work okay with my thompson 100mm stem. Now I wait for it to get to Melbourne

    I'm almost the same size as previously mentioned, 6'0.5", 32" inseem, and went large. I can't stand riding a small bike, especially since I ride the bike from xc to Northstar to Downieville. I've currently got a 105mm stem, thinking about going 100mm, and standard setback post. But, we'll see. Good luck!

    Doesn't it suck being inbetween sizes? The one bike I felt fit me like a glove was an intense 5.5, large. Chumba has similar geo, including the 24" tt, so I opted for them! Still stoked on the bike; you'll love your VF2!

    Thanks Marco and Steve. I think the Med should suit me. Got the RXC-1 for the long road rides.
    Yeah I hate being in between sizes, but at least this way my shorter mates can have a go!

    Cant wait. Will post pics soon
