    Does anyone own a Ironhorse 7point series bike, or Yeti Asx that would consider lettin me parking lot test it?? I am about 6' 1'', and I am tryin to figure out the right size bike for me. I have finally decided to hunker down and purchase a bike and have narrowed it down to these to bikes; so I really need to make sure when I purchase a bike I will be gettin one that I am comfortable with. I live in Lacey Wa. right next to River Ridge High School, I can meet up with a person that is willing to help me out in a area that they are comfortable at.

    I thank you very much for your time, and I would like to thank everyone in advance for there help.

    Lacey eh? I live just down the road from you (off College St.) and have an ASX. I ride a small so I can guarantee that mine won't feel right for you but you're more than welcome to check it out sometime.

    Supergo in Seattle should have the 7 point 7 and REI had some ASX's in the Tacoma and Seattle locations earlier this year.

    I'm 6'1" and ride a large 7point7. The bike is still fairly nimble but the front end is a bit of a choir to get off the ground when dropping things at slow speeds/manualing. Besides that I love the bike, but it would be interesting to try a medium and see the difference.

    hopefully i will be able to go to supergo in seattle to get fitted and maybe a test ride. (i wont purchase it from there, if i do get a 7Point.) i am gonna call a couple of other bike shops to get fitted and posible test ride for the ASX.

    so, hopefully tuesday i can do this.
