    Gary Fisher Rig - Sizing question

    I'm looking to pick up a 09' GF Rig, but I've called around to all the LBS around here and none have any in stock(if you are a LBS in the Chicagoland area that has one, post here or drop me a PM please!). My question is, if I am 6'3", 34-36inch inseam, what size do I want, 19" or 21". I figure the 21" since I have been riding a 19.5" for 6 or so years now and I feel I've gotten a few inches taller since then.

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm 5'11. I was looking at two identical diamondback hardtail mt bikes a while back. One was 18, the other was 16.5. I felt like the 16.5 was more fit for me, however I wasn't sure if I'd like the size of it on certain trails, so I went with the 18. Best move I ever made.

    In short - If it were ME... and I were in between 2 sizes... I'd go 1 up rather than 1 down. Mostly because you can adapt to a frame slightly bigger, whereas you're kind of cramped and stuck with a frame that's slightly smaller.

    +1 for that, sounds like you need the 21"

    Definitely get the 21. I'm 5'10" and almost went with the 19. I have a Paragon but pretty much the same frame
