I'm just in the process of speccing up a new play bike, and have got my mind set on a Banshee/Mythic Rampant. Most of what I ride is fairly smooth short-course UK downhill - so a light, short travel playful bike is what I'm after. The Rampant fits the bill nicely.
However, I'm fairly tall (6'3") and have silly long legs (39" inside leg). Is there anyone here tall like me who owns a Rampant? And what are your experiences? It's that never ever-ending compromise when you are tall and want a play bike - how do you get something small and fun, that isn't, well, too small!?
Occasionally I like to go to a trail centre and have a proper pedal around. Again, people say that the Rampant makes a great trail bike by putting the seat up and swapping out a long stem. But again, any of these people tall like me? Am I going to get any kind of decent leg extension on a bike like this?
Any advice (from real life experience!) is much appreciated.
