  • I'm 6'4 and ride an XL Boardman Team Carbon Ltd Ed, 2010. It needed a but of adjusting to get it to what I thought was right, but also going for a bike fit just to get it spot on. You should be fine with that size frame.

  • cheers thats good to know.....only question left is COMP or TEAM :?
  • If you've got the cash, get the Team. It gets very good reviews, and has 105 group set, although the Comp with SRAM Apex will be just fine.
