    Sizing Question

    The 06' EC-D is listed as S/M

    Will this size fit a 5'9" rider without being too cramped? Bike will be ridden at Whistler Bike Park.

    quoted this from the mongoose site...should help...looks like you want a medium


    A: S/M/L/XL, often called t-shirt-sizing, is often used for frames with compact geometry (a slightly sloping top tube). Compared to a frame with a horizontal top tube, these sizes are roughly equivalent to 15"/17"/19"/21", although you'll find that the seat tube length these measurements refer to is actually shorter than that (again, due to the compact geometry).

    Your dealer is best equipped to provide an accurate, in-person fit assessment, but in general, you'll want a small if you're 5'2"-5'6", a medium if you're 5'6"-5'-9", a large if you're 5'9"-6'1", and an XL if you're taller than 6'1". These are rough estimates, and you may find that your body proportions lend themselves to a frame size other than the ones indicated.
