As someone that's 6'3", I'd personally go with a 21.5" TT. The S&M DTF frame comes with a 5" tall HT that will pair nicely with the S&M Widemouth XL fork (172mm steerer tube). The DTF has a nice "all-around" geo like the ATF, but imo is a little ... more »

Feet, pedals, pegs, cranks, etc: 1. Where do you place your foot on the pedal? Ball of my foot on the center of the axle-ish. 2. If you run 4 pegs, does your back foot hit your opposite side peg? Don't run pegs, but the back of my foot would barely hit ... more »

2007 Fit Bike Co Pro

Specs here: https://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/BikeSpecs.aspx?item=95441 That site has it valued at $78 US in excellent used condition... It's a nice complete, but older completes don't hold their value over time.

This. I had the same thing happen when trying to use a 5mm spacer. Tried a 10mm spacer and the noise went away... Just make sure the top of your steerer tube isn't below the top pinch bolt.

What bar/ stem combo are you currently using and what 21.75" frame do you have? Taller wheels won't necessarily give you more comfort. It has more to do with BB height, TT length and front end rise (bar/ stem rise and headset spacers). I was more hunched ... more »

Ya, no... It just makes you sound like an edgy skater from circa 2004.

The "you must be able to do this trick" bullshit needs to stay out of BMX... This isn't the skate community. lol

Added reply in a thread 20" x 2.2" Tires 7/7/2019 6:01 PM

The 2.1 S&M Mainline tire would be another good choice (actual inflated width is 2.24"). I run the 2.4/2.1 combo on the street, because the paved surfaces around me always get dirty/ loose from the rain. The tread wear is very minimal on the street. ... more »

I'd suggest checking out what pro riders around your height are using as a reference. David Grant: 6'5" Bike Check 10" bars, TL stem, 21.6" TT (He has a 21.9" TT option, but is back on the 21.6")

I guess I got lucky with my Tall Boy... It has a "claimed" slammed CS of 13.475" which would "theoretically" equal (using my gear ratio): 28-10: 13.5" w/ half link . Sure enough I was able to slam it 100% with my wheel centered at 13.5" w/ half link:
