Now, I'm not going to be buying a 29er anytime soon. I'm quite happy with the bikes I have.
Working in a bike shop it's handy to know what fits you personally so you can relate to others. So to that end I've been trying any likely looking 29er for size.
Any 29er that's the right length for me is far too tall in the stand over. I have no clearance at all
Any 29er that's got enough stand over room is way too short like a sit up and beg shopper.
I'm 5'8". 30" inside leg, so shorter than average but not a midget. A medium sized MTB normally fits me perfectly
So what's the crack with the sizing on these things then?
