    Also interested in testing a medium Megatrail/Shred Dogg in the Bay Area. Ship one out and we'll schedule a Bay Area Ridemonkey Demo :busted:

    That's why I like your sizing. In most brands the med is too short at high speed and the lg is too tall when I want to get low or suck the rear wheel up to clear obstacles.

    Where are you and why haven't we ridden before???

    Also that's a great idea. There are a lot of people spending a lot of money on bikes out here.

    That was on purpose :) I always had the same dilemma, but am pretty much at the top of the bell curve of height distribution. GG sizing was made to have a medium centered around 5'10", which is the top of the bell curve, and the other sizes are based around that. Interestingly enough, the sales distribution of sizes is pretty close to a 1 sigma, 2 sigma, 3 sigma breakdown.

    To answer a question of yours from the other thread, if you're looking for a $3k build, but want higher end parts than the Ride 2 build, we have demo bikes for sale, plus the employee bikes are going up for sale shortly. We can figure out something for your budget.

    Tahoe is the closest BAMF with a medium. If @rockofullr and @djjohnr are serious about getting a bay area demo bike shipped out, let us know. That's been done before.

    Bike sizing always made me wonder. There are lots of people in the 5'10" to 6'0" range so why not make a bike that fits this group. Glad someone has it figured out.

    I would be very interested in this.

    Yes! I know a lot of riders out here that would love to take a ride on something they haven't seen before.

    Keep me in the loop.

    Latest Pedälhead review starts off with "I’ve had a stupid amount of fun on the Guerrilla Gravity “Pedalhead” over the last month and a half. "

    Coming up in a matter of days: the Sedona Camping Weekend

    Fun times to be had. It was booked completely, but a couple riders can't make it, which means there are a couple spots left if anybody wants to shred in the desert this weekend.
