    giant team dh sizing q

    okay i have the opportunity to get the frame for pretty cheap. (w/ mag30 for 600 USD, it's a 2003)

    however, i'm unsure about if it would fit me or not. it's a pretty far drive, so i can't really go test it out first or anything.

    it's a medium, and i'm about....maybe 5'8", 185lbs. i currently ride a medium norco atomik and it feels good

    any opinions on this?

    i'm trying to find a shop that has a medium dh team/comp built up so i can try it out, but i'm curious about people's opinions

    thanks

    Trust me, you really want the medium. I'm 6'3", but was interested in the medium initially because I wanted to flick it around easier. Too small for me, but just right for you.

    Perfect fit...

    I ride the same bike, in the large version and love it....I'm 6', which is right on the bubble. Another guy on our race team is 6 foot as well, and he rides the medium. I tend to ride bigger bikes because I like the stretched out feel and longer wheel base, but I don't have a huge amount of stand-over. For your height, I would think the med would be perfect. Can't beat the bike for DH racing in the cost/speed/ride catagory.
    Yes, I want some cheezy poofs...!
