    Fantom 29 Sizing HELP

    I am currently leaning towards a Fantom29 frame and need help picking the right one. I am 5' 11.5" tall with a 35" inseam. BD recommends the 17.5" but I feel like I would need the 19". When sitting on bikes in my LBS, 18.5" seems like it should be the smallest I should go, on up to 19.5". Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Not sure if it helps you or not but in I'm 6' 2" and got the 19" frame. It fits nice but does feel pretty big...especially since it's a 19".

    Im in the same boat as you. I am 5'11" and the 17.5 seems like a short seat tube. That being said, the ETT on the 17.5 is just over 24 inches, so I am guessing that their bikes have longer cockpits and shorter seat tubes. Motobecane doesn't give you the reach measurements so I am not sure, but 17.5 feels right on paper when you look at the other numbers.
    Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.
