Sandwich it felt really good before and now with a little more fork travel and larger stanchions look out. What I should have said was " feels even more like an all mountain bike now
J-Dubs I am 6' and have a 32-33" inseam. I am riding an 18" frame. 2012 model I used the stock stem flipped down and on 2013 I flipped it up. No problem with the reach either way for me.
With the shoes and pedals I'm running and my leg extension the seat post has about 7/8ths of an inch before before it bottoms out on the seat clamp. If you right click and hit view on the above pic you'll see what I mean.
Thank you. I rode the 2012 in 18" yesterday. It felt great and I had 8.5" of seatpost at full extension. That should be plenty of room. I have longer legs than toso, so even though the 90mm stem felt ok, I'll throw a 70 on there for good measure. Looking forward to the availability of the 2013.
