    sizing question

    I am looking int getting first dedicated single speed but nothing I ma really interested in via the LBS that I can try so doing the dreaded online shopping.

    In general on Full suspension bikes I would like a 23.5 ETT with seat level around the handlebars. Lower the seat tube the better in most cases (around 17"). My question is do most of you who have a FS 29er and HT 29er try to keep a similar geo for the frint triangle? Looking for short chain stays more worried about ETT and HT height and angle.

    Considerations so far all medium

    Kona Unit
    Nine One 9 (I hear it rides nice for Alu) - More costly than other frames as well
    Civilian Luddite

    Edit - Nevrmind I went with medium luddite - too good a deal too pass on

    I really thought about an answer and then realized I've never had a FS 29er, so my opinion is mute. All I know is that Units clear 2.4 Ardents on wider rims.
