Im considering getting a new frame with a slightly longer toptube than my current 21inch sunday funday because at 6 foot 3 i feel kind of cramped. To me 21.6 sounds a bit ridiculous but was wondering if anyone has got the bsd raider in this size. open to other suggestions from my fellow tall fucks

6'1 with a Fucked Shoulder, It was actually suggested to Me via a Sports Physio & A Legit Doctor who Cycled to get a Longer Frame & Taller, Wider Bars. I HEAVILY considered a Raider & I'm kinda bummed the Space Ghost Purple Raider came out not long after I got My 21.5" Solid! I got such an amazing deal on the Solid, I wouldn't have even been able to buy a Raider in the UK let alone an American Made 21.5"! I was actually pretty terrified about how big it would be, BUT! The Frame doesn't actually seem that big, bearing in mind the last Frame I rode properly was a 20" Benny L & I've ridden Flat for a number of years too I was expecting it to look like a bus! I haven't Ridden it yet, awaiting on some Parts to drop before it's fully built! I'd would say go for it if You're cramped on a 21", the 21.6" Raider seems logical! I mean, You could go with a 21.25" There's one or two Frames that are like 21.3" etc. I'd say a 21.5" is deffo do-able for You!

seriously considering it. I already have a set of 10 inch rise bars which seems to have solved the cramped back issues i was having. they seem to make spins easier but kinda make the bike feel extremely loose and extremely jittery as well. that space purple is banging though, only problem is my ocd over colour co ordination

Oh I Know That OCD Well Hahahahaha grin

What Are You Thinking Of 10" Bars Over All?

I've been on a 21" for years and a 20.75 before that. But I'm seriously considering stepping up to a 21.25" frame. I'm 6' tall, so more room on the bike definitely doesn't seem like a bad idea. Smaller riders always seem to be more comfy on the bike, and it seems like smaller riders' nose manual game is always on point!

I'm 6'3" and doing 10 Raider bars and 21.25 Bermuda and will definitely be jumping to the Raider in 21.6 soon.

21.6 seems like crazy big. Id go with 21.25-21.5
