    Ibis Sizing...

    Hey all,

    So I'm trying to decide on whether I should buy the large or extra large mojo. I'm 18 years old and probably have about a half inch or an inch to grow. These are my measurements at present:

    Inseam = 36.2 inches or 920 mm
    Torso = 24.4 inches or 620 mm
    Arm Span = 73.5 inches (6 foot 1 & 1/2.)
    Overall Height = 6 foot 1

    If anyone could give me adivice I'd really appreciate it!

    Unfortunately you're right in the middle size wise, not an obvious Large or XL ie I guess a six footer would be a large and a 6'2+ would be a XL

    It will depend on intended usage race/enduro/trail or all mountain, the trails you ride and also what your used too (existing bike)

    If you ride more technical trails, tight single track and/or 'all mountain' perhaps the large will give you a slightly more 'chuckable' bike.
    If however you intend to race/enduro or the trails are more open & flowing the slightly more stretched out position (racer) may be better.

    There's only 20mm difference in the top tube between the Large & XL which can easily be accommodated with stem and/or setback post etc

    I have similar measurements to you perhaps maybe 3/4 of 1 inch taller and ride an XL, most (inc Scott from Ibis) advised a Large but I'm very happy with the XL, zero setback post & 100mm stem. I ride Enduros and more open ST but I don't think I'm loosing anything in the tighter stuff

    Good luck and with either size I'm sure you will love the bike
    Just Ride !

    I assume by 19" you have ordered a large, from the postings on this forum, as a general rule anybody from say 5'9" to 6'1"could ride a large. This depends on usage and style/preference the Mojo tends to have a shortish top tube compared to other bikes so a medium for some bikes may be close to a large for a Mojo

    At 182cm (5'11"+?) I think you'll be fine and will love the bike.
    Just Ride !

    Thanks for the advice Aussierider. I think I will probably opt for the extra large
