    2012 Rock Springs Elite 29er/2012 Nail Trail 29er

    Anyone riding one of these and find that the frame feels a little small?

    I'm 5' 11.5" with 32.5 inseam and the 19" frame feels a little small.

    *FYI...the US Nail Trail and Rock Springs (UK) bike in the 29er wheel size shared the same frame in 2012.

    I am not riding one, but your proportions seem normal for your height and right in the middle for that frame, and going to the next size up would not generally make sense. What do you mean by small - that you are too choked up on the handlebars? Obvious things to play with are getting the seat back, lowering the handlebars, raising seat height, switching to a longer stem before concluding that the frame is a bad fit. Of course, everything ultimately comes back to what you feel comfortable with.
