What size Orange 5 do you ride?
I currently ride an 07 Large Stumpjumper FSR. I’m going to buy an Orange 5 frame. Upon demoing an 18″ 5, it did feel a little cramped but it did have a short stem with the saddle in a middle position on the rails.
I’m 6 foot 2 and looking at the geometry the Effective Top Tube Length of my Stumpy is nearest to the 18″ 5 than the 20″.
How tall are you and what size 5’s do you ride??
Its worth noting that i have a 65mm stem om my stumpy so could easily go to a 90mm stem on an 18″ 5. I know i should really demo a 20″ but i much prefer the look of the 18″.Posted 9 years agofreeform5spotMember
understand the dilema mate. I am the same size as you.
I had an 80mm and layback and it still was a bit cramped.
in the end I had to let it go and now feeling better on a 19″ 5 spot. I am thinking of going back to a single pivot set up but it will have to be a Heckler I reckon.Posted 9 years agojimwMember
I am 6’2″, 34 inside leg and I have the 20″. I tried an 18″ and it was too small. Once I got used to the bike I have found it to be fantastic in all respects (bar the cr*p Race Face BB), and I certainly don’t have problems with slow speed/tight turns compared to my mates. I do have the 32 Talas upgrade which I found has helped in steep up-hill work, but it has to be really steep to need it. Get one and enjoy!!Posted 9 years agoMikeT-23Member
Another 6 footer with an 18 incher here too. No issues.
If this thread was on a different topic, you have no idea how damned proud I’d be to be saying that.
