I'm about 6 foot three inches, and i love riding these little bikes. I bought a hoffman scarab(20.25 head tube, i believe) and recently its been a little annoying when i constantly smash my knees on the handlebars, and i have to bring my legs damn near my chest in order to catch the frame during toejam whips. my question is, does anyone ride longer frames? how are the 21, 21.25 length frames? Im interested in the Macniel deuce deuce 22inch but i need some input on these longer frames before i buy one.

I'm the same height as you and I've always ridden 21" TT. No problems.


The bigger the waistband, the deeper the quicksand!!

im 6'3 and i ride a 21tt, anything bigger seems too big, but i have ridden a 20.75 before with no problems

usually frames with longer rear ends and top tubes will be good


My refs ?... Nigga just ask about me

im 6 something and right now ride 20.75 and it feels good but i do hit my knees quite a bunch, (prob. 5 or so times a day) so im getting a 21 for my next frame for sure to try it out
