Hopefully not so much of an odd question.

Im looking at buying a bowery 72 this weekend. However I can only find them in size medium (50cm).

Does anyone know if this would fit someone whos 5'11"?

I don't want to waste a trip to a bike shop a fair distance away from me to go home empty handed.

Inside leg is erm... well trousers are a 32" inside leg...

Otherwise I'll have to go down the langster route.

Thanks is advance.

    I reckon you should be fine on the M.
  • Awesome. I'll go and have a go in the morning then and hopefully if the weathers not too bad I can go and get it :)

  • I've got last year's Bowery 72 in large. I'm 6' and have a 33" inside leg and it fits me great, although I did lose a couple of cm off of the stem to suit my reach.

    There's a big quoted difference (5.5cm) between medium and large, although what that translates to in practice I'm not sure. As always it would depend on what you find comfy...
