I'm currently in the Army and stationed in S.Korea and since we dont do anything here I wanted to start something new with all this free time i have.. i have the money to buy a bike but i just really dont know anything about how to size myself to a bike etc. I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me advice. There are a lot of spots here in South Korea to rip i just really cant wait to get started.

To size yourself, you need to know how tall you are. If your a giant like me(anywhere from like 5'10\"-6'5\"), youre gonna need a 20.75\"-21.5\" frame. If your like 5'-5'10\", go with 20\"-20.5\".

Look at the Fit, Integral, and the Stolen completes. Theyre all great quality bikes.

the kink completes are nice too, try to stay away from all the bikes you might find at a shop like specialized, haro, or felt.

What he said. I'm right at 6 foot and ride a 21 inch toptube - my friends are 5'9 and they ride a 20.7 and a 20.6
