    parker riders, what size frame ya got?

    i'm looking to pick up a parker from jenson and i'm trying to figure out what size i want. i'm 5'8" with about a 29.5" inseam. i can't make up my mind on either a small or medium.

    can ya tell me your height, inseam, frame size and are you satisfied with that size or wish you went bigger or smaller? thanks

    I am 5'9" ,but i don't know my inseam measurement. I bought a medium and I think it fits me well.

    6'1'' large feels good.

    well prob too late now, but they all have the same standover height, the main (and I think only) difference is the wheel base length. I think the large is 2 inches longer. Im 5'11" with a normal upper torso/arms and I have a medium that fits awesome. If you have longer arms prob want the larger cockpit

    I am your size, but I am long-limbed. I looked at the parker this past summer when I was in the market for that type bike. IMO get the small, you will like the tighter wheelbase and you can always lengthen the cockpit using a bit longer stem and a setback post.
