    Ritchey Commando

    Hey guys, I'm looking at possibly building up a Ritchey Commando and I'm wondering what size to order. Can some of you post what size you ride and how tall you are please? Thanks

    So at just a few mm short of 6' I should probably go with the Commando in a 19"?

    Thanks Mike, I guess that's the route I should go then. Do you have any more pics of your set up? Especially if you're riding it, so I can get a feel for how I might be positioned on it. Thanks!

    Thanks! Have you ridden in snow or sand? I'm curious how you think the steep geo handles in loose conditions.
