    can I get away with it?

    Hi,

    Just in my final days before buying a new xc hardtail I spotted the kikapu delux. Looks like a sweet setup, my problem is that I live in Japan, and the largest size they stock is the 18. I'm 6ft with 34 inseam, will this be ok? I don't want something that will be too twitchy or a pain to pedal, but I don't ride em too big either. My 19in Jamis ht is about right.

    Any help will be apreciated.

    Might want to go a size up if that's possible.

    I would try online. I think www.wheelworld.com has some deals on Kikapu Deluxes. I don't know if they have full bikes so you may have to build a frame up. Others to try are www.123bikes.com. Check around.

    Later...
