CTY 2.1 size recommendation


I am interested in purchasing the CTY 2.1 bike  but am confused about the size to order.

I measured my inseam as ~34" (a quarter inch above 34) and am 6' tall (both measured with shoes on) - do you think the L or the XL size would be better for me?  The REI bike fit page recommends having a 1"-2" difference in the inseam and the standover height for bikes with sloping tubes - so based on this is L the right size for me?

@ozy301 Thanks for reaching out!

You are correct, that the size Large is the one you want to go with. That should give you enough room to stand over the frame comfortably. An XL would be very close and uncomfortable if you had to hop out of the saddle suddenly.

Hope this helps, thanks!
