    Another Dos niner sizing question

    With the year models changing it is always a good time to grab a last years deal on a frame or bike. I have been looking at the Salsa Dos niners and feel I'm in between sizes again. I'm 6'3" with a 35 " standover height in bare feet. Frames are hard to find so anyone my size have an opinion? thanks

    Standover height on the Dos Niner

    I asked the same question about 2 months ago on this forum and got a shload of good feedback. After test riding a Dos I immediately bought it that day... (Thanks, Natshot!)

    I find that on the Dos, it does seem a little taller than is comfortable for the boys when you are stradling the bike with both feet on the ground but when I ride it the effective standover height is dead-on perfect. That is to say that the frame handles predictably and there is nothing funny feeling about it. On the suggestion of several people from this forum I chose the 18" size based on the effective top tube length of a bike I know fits me well.

    This forum did not lead me astray, the bike just rails. FWIW, the Dos flows really well.
