Hi!

I come from Poland - I'm sorry for my English...

I have one question to You.

What do You think, which size of frame(MTB) would be good for me: My predispositions:
- height > 197 cm = 77,55 inches
- length of the leg (from heel to groin) > 98 cm = 38,58 inches
- lenght of the arm (from the center of armpit to knuckle <without lenght of the longest finger!>) >
75-77 cm = 29,52-30,31 inches
- lenght of the arm (from the center of armpit until the end of the longest finger) > 86-88 cm = 33,85-
34,64 inches
- lenght of the trunk (from pelvisbone to collarbone; inhalation/exhalation)
> 50/55 cm = 19,68/21,65 inches

which size of frame should I choose to: (MTB frame)
- XC/sport ride
- sth like hmmmm.... between XC and globetrotter/travel ride - normal ride through forests....
- typical globetrotter/travel, "light" ride

Thank You for any informations and advices

Your English is great; far better than my (any other language you care to name, though I do
read/write a little French)!

Probably about as big as you can find.

Maras,

I agree with Dave, probably the biggest you can find. Test ride one if you have the opportunity.

If you have the money for a custom bike (US $1500 or more) you might try Zinn Cycles in Boulder, CO,
USA. Dial to the USA then 303-499-4349.

Even if you don't have the money for a custom bike, contact them. They can probably answer your
questions better than just about anyone else.

Thanks

Do you think 23,5'' MTB will be good for me? Wasn't it too big for me? I heard that frame should
(better responsive) be a little bit smaller? I ride rather normal - not radical XC and radical
globetrotter .;)

Marek Nawrocki - it's me :)) and too small frame.. ;)
