Anyone got a small size rockrider?

Postby wilbo83 » Sat Nov 10, 2012 20:25 pm

Am considering getting a Rockrider 8.1. I am about 5"7 so not sure whether to go for a S or M. Popped into store today and they only had mediums which felt a bit on the large side with not much standover. I want it for a trail bike, currently ride a 17" Scott Scale 70 for XC stuff. Would like to see a S or hear from anyone who has one.

    why ? are you getting rid of the scott ? they are both 100mm travel bikes, i can't see what the 8.1 will do that the scale wont ?
    but that aside if like you said

I'm 5'11 and my 9.1 is a large. Wouldn't want one any shorter.
