    The Spot site is down but if you email them, they will answer your questions.

    I'm 5'11''...

    I'm 5'11'', and I ride the 19" size. My buddy has a 17.5", and he's about 5'8". If the frame is the right size buy it! The Spot is a SWEET rig! Rides very nice! You won't regret it.
    You COULD do it on a geared bike, but I wouldn't reccomend it!

    Derailleurs are for failures!

    I ride a JD green 19" (6' and 35" inseam) Spot and I am very happy with it. I also have a Spot SS cyclocrosser. Would highly recommend Spot for anyone considering an SS. Wish they'd get the website fixed though.

    Mine's a 19"

    I'm 5'-9" or so. My other hardtail is a 22.5" top tube and it feels a little short now. This 19" Spot frame is about as big as I dare get. I run a short (100mm) stem but I'm used to it and love the "roominess". Standover is fine (I have a 32" inseam).

    I agree with the others who say you will really like the feel of the bike.

    In my opinion, they do run a bit small. I am 5'8" and I used to own a 17.5 Spot. I found the TT to be a bit small for me. Spot specs effective TT to be 22.5, but I found my actual CTC to be 21.5.

    2 Singlespeeds later though and I still feel that the Spot was the best riding singlespeed I owned. Very snappy, climbed exceptionally well, was light and stiff. If I ever buy another singlespeed frame, it will be a Spot.

    Michael is a cool dude too.
    Thanks to for my awesome bike frames!
