I'm about to order a super bud but can't decide on the size. I'm moving from road to mtb for a more upright ride. I'm 6'2" , 34" inside leg which would give me extra large according to the Wiggle guide, but somethings telling me to go for the large.

I normally ride a 58.7 top tube with 12cm stem on the road, the focus has tt's of 60.5 and 62cm. I just get the feeling the large is going to leave me too stretched out, some of the bikes I've sat on have been mediums and felt OK !

Any other bud owners ? what size / height did you go for ?

Thanks

    Really need to sit on the bike or your taking a big chance ordering online and the messing around sending it back.

    It does not matter how tall you are, you have to consider inside leg length and reach is just as important. Two people of the same height can have different size frames and fit them both perfectly.

    I have Focus Super Bud size L and I am 6"0 (184cm) and it is perfect. I recon that for you L would be also enough.
