hey guys hows it going? I just started riding probably like 3 months ago and my wolf pack has grown from one wolf to two. My buddy is looking into gettting a mountain bike so we can ride around. nothing too expensive just for fun.
anyways he went to sport chalet and they told him hes a 32.5-34 inseam with a 60-62 frame size.
my frame is like a 16" and Im 5'5-5'6.
what size does he need?
were trying to get him a bike off craigslist or ebay.
thanks in adavance

First congrats on expanding your wolf pack, second if he is 6 foot a 20" frame would be good
there is a good chart here

That's a great link, but you can't fit a bike over the internet. I suggest he ride as many bikes as possible and see what feels good to him.
