So that makes you a six-footer, right? (gotta downgrade you to
I am 6'1" (185.5cm) and I rode a 2006 Stumpjumper a couple weeks
ago. When I was just putting around in the shop parking lot, it felt
plenty big enough. When I started working on the climb, it felt very
small. It was too short for me. I was surprised. I normally fit a Large
pretty well. I don't have super long legs. More of a balanced
proportion. If you have really long legs and a short torso, the Large
might be OK. But you better do a real ride to know for sure. I would
doubt that a Specialized 18" would ever be good for a six-footer.
