Hi,

I'm looking at buying the Boardman Mountain Bike Team HT 650B 2014 in the end of season sale. But they've sold out of the 19" in my local store and only have the 18" left. I'm 5'11'' 32'' inner leg. Do you think this will be too small for me?

    No one can give an experience relevant to YOU, they can only give an opinion.

    In my OPINION the top tube of the 19" (Large) is going to be a bit long for you, so would suggest the 18" (medium), that said if you go for a 19" and it is too long you could swap the seatpost for an inline to shorten the cockpit when seated.

    I'm 5'11.5" (33" inside leg) and ride a 2014 19inch Team 650b. I've always felt it was on the large size for me and think I would have done better getting the next size down.
