    6 foot 4

    19" or 20" off road

    60cm cyclocross (don't do road)

    6' 1" – 20" off-road and 62cm fixie on road.

    Not quite 6ft, but with a long inside leg (34"), so fit is a hard one with me.

    My Kona HT is a 19" but to make it right it has acres of seatpost and high rise bars. A 21" would probably have been more suitable, but I didn't want a gate.

    My '06 Enduro was a Large, as is my '08, but I still have a load of seatpost and short stem, as they are quite long anyway and the short torso doesn't help.

    [edit]
    I reckon if you're really using the Bfe for what it's meant for 16'' would be right, if you want to go more XC then a bigger size would be a possibility. imo etc.

    snap, same out of proportion body as you. Usually pick large and reduce the stem length to suit

    I had a conversation with someone last night about bike size and the seat tube length isn't the only way to measure a bike size.

    I've just found out both my BMX and my Soul are the same cockpit size by some wierd coincidence.

    18" Scandal 29er – just on the cusp of this being a bit small but fits well with a lot of seatpost and 100mm stem

    58cm CX – 56cm felt too small, this felt a bit big, went for the big, maybe need a shorter stem.

    19" Nail Trail SS'ed utility bike – never liked the geometry on this, tall and short
