    Giant XTC hardtail sizing ???

    Hi,
    I have a favor to ask to Giant XTC owners, especially the 19" frame owners. I would need a specific measurement, from the middle top of the headtube to the middle of the seatpost (parallel to the ground) like the redline on the picture.

    I'm asking this because Giant measure their frames like the blueline on the pic, but I need the other measure to compare, and to know what size to buy.

    So thanks a lot to anyone who will take the time to help me.

    I have a 17" (med) XTC hardtail, love that bike!!!!

    But wouldn't it be better to just go to your shop and try each size and see which one fits you best? IMO, it seems that actual fit is a better guide than measurements.

    Either way, good luck, it is a fun bike to ride. I just recently threw disc brakes and an 80mm coil zuchi fork and the bike is at least as much fun as my Enduro to ride, with half the problems....

    tried the 18,5 NRS and I fit really well on it (it has the same toptube length)

    ...so I ordered the 19" XTC. It will be almost a pound less than my current 20" Devinci frame and it will be longer for a racier fit. Thanks for the positive comments on the XTC !
    I will sure love it too !
