What size bike should I get?
#1
I have a very long inseam for my height so I don't know what size of bike I should get.

I am 6 feet tall, have a 35 inch inseam, and I weigh 130 pounds.

Thanks!


Edit: I am looking for a xc mountain bike with a little supension like the "Scott spark rc"

need to know what type of bike are you wanting? i.e...road, hybrid, mountain..etc

I would go for a 21" frame, with 54cm from bottom bracket center to the top of seat tube. My hardtail Merida 29er has XL frame that fits great with my 6'1 height. But it also depends on personal preference ... have you had prior experience with XC mountain bikes or full suspension?
