Sizing for 29ers
« on: March 19, 2013, 04:27:13 PM »
Hey all - I'll be renting a Specialized Stumpjumper hardtail 29er next month during a trip north. I figured it would be a good chance to try a 29er for the first time. I need to reserve it in advance. I ride a size large Specialized in a 26er, but I'm on the short range for someone who rides a large. Should I go for a large in a 29er, too? Or is the sizing different for 29ers? It's just a rental, so I'm confident I could make either a large or a medium work for a couple of days, but any advice would be great. Thanks

Prob ask the shop that is renting it. Or compare your bike's geo with the geo on those two sizes to give you an idea of which may work better for you.

You are likely to get some ridiculous answers here shortly. Brace yourself. ;)

For most 29ers as a reference but depending on inseam and monkey arm length you may feel more comfortable on a size up or down ;)
6'3" and up Extra Large
5'11"-6'2" Large
5'7"-5'10" Medium
5'6" or under Small
