No you'd need a large. My friend had a medium and it didn't fit me. I'm 6' even. He recently sold it
and bought a Bullit with a Progressive Shock and is much happier with the bike. Lighter, more travel
and pedals great.

Not sure I follow but maybe I'm lacking in english skills being that it is my third language.

I am 6ft½inch tall and I wonder if a medium size Uzzi SL frame is the right for me size wise that
is. I'm a heavy dude (220+ pounds currently going down) but it's not so much frame strengths that I
wonder about.

Please tell me what info is needed.

Thx

OK, thx.

Not the answer I hoped for but rather that than buying a bike that's to small even if it's
a bargain.

Kind regards

It maybe possible to buy a replacement large seat tower from Intense. I did this with my large Uzzi
DH which I bought for a longer top tube, then bought a medium seat tower.

Might be worth checking out if you can get a good deal.

If your unqualified to determine your framesize you certainly don't need an Uzzi. Learn to
walk first.

Give the guy a break. Don't trash him, educate him.

Frame sizes differ from manufacter to manufacturer. Best thing to do is find an LBS with the same
frame or something similar to get sized on. Maybe see if the person your getting the frame from will
let you take a few laps before he strips it on the parts.

Really! If I followed the guidelines on the Intense website I would've purchased a medium sized
frame and been miserable on it. The folks I bought the bike from knew better and steered me to a
large frame which fits me perfectly.

I agree, which is why i would always get on the bike i was buying to make sure that it was a good
fit. Most manufacturers make frames around a 5'11" rider without giving any thought to torso, arm or
leg measurements. They can't account for every variety of human who might purchase their stuff.
