    Any 5' 7" riders on a Medium 05 Six-Pack ?

    The 2005 frame geometry was longer than usual, 18.5" ST \ 23.5 TT
    I find it perfect for AM and pedaling, but it is a bit longish for the real techy stuff (for me).
    Finding a Small frame \ front triangle was considered, but could not find one.

    What stem are you using?
    I used a 50 mm stem for a while, then 70 mm for AM mainly, now I am back with 50 mm.

    Thanks

    Saar

    That frame sounds a little big for you but if I remember the pictures you posted in the past right, it doesn't really slow you down!

    I am 5'10" with a 33in inseam and ride a '06 RFX with 70mm stem and 4in drop Gravity Dropper. The ideal GD position for pedaling is about 1/2 in above the post completely inserted in the seat tube. I imagine that pretty much rules out adjustable seatposts for you.

    well..

    I took a ride on a Medium 2008 Spot and it felt perfect.
    I know that this sizing issue is not very limiting, however it feels like it could be better.

    Thanks for the input.
