    Tall riders SS2

    I am considering SS2 as park bike - but I am tall - 6'5'' or 196 cm. I am mostly legs - inseam 37 and short torso - so that should help. Tall riders - is large SS2 long enough for you? Thanks a lot!

    I'm riding a large SS2 and I'm 183cm. It'd be too short for you I think, and raising the seat up enough to pedal the bike would have it end up too far toward the rear of the bike, given the way the seat tube slopes back. Pity they don't do extra large sizes in their frames.

    You need the new Uzzi - geometry based on the SS2 but more versatile.

    I am not really looking for versatility - it would be dedicated play bike for mostly Colorado resorts. The other variant could be Transition Tr250, but I think it's even shorter. Too bad Intense does not publish reach and stack numbers...

    What exactly makes it more versatile? Im suspect of the marketing for that bike.

    Funny enough, DIRT magazine (who just rock) called the SS2 the product of the year for the DIRT 100. Second year in a row I think.


    Can't wait to pick up mine
    Stuff.

    Dude, it's just that if you put he seat up to pedal you're sitting right over the back wheel. Other than that it's faultless.
