    VP Free sizing help please

    I'm 6'3'' and according to the SC site, that puts me inbetween a L and XL. I'll be running a 888 200mm on it and using it for N* and DH racing in NorCal.

    In the $1500 (max) frame price range, I figure the VP will serve me well, but I'm not sure about sizing.

    Your input is appreciated.

    Good info here on what has worked for riders of various sizes: http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/sho...highlight=free

    Personally, for what you want from the bike, I would recommend the Large.

    Disclaimer: I'm 6' and ride a large VP-Free but wish I had a medium.

    Large or even a medium if you like small bikes.

    I am 6-4 and came into a XL for a price I could not say no to. I like it alot since I do alot of XC here in austin. When I get up to seattle next month I will have to see how she fairs pointing downhill at this size. Even running her at 7" up front and she is still huge.

    since you said N* and DH runs mostly then get the large.......more pedaling stuff then go for the XL
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
