I am 6,5 230 lbs. I have been commuting to school on an old schwin 68cm frame. It fits me well. I am interested in buying a new mountain bike to get into the sport. I want a hard tail in the 600-1,000 price range. I have been on 21 in trek frames at my lbs but wasn't happy with the way they fit. I was thinking about a 22in frame but have found only Kona bikes that come in a 22in. These are the bikes i am interested in:
Kona Cinder Cone
Gary Fisher Cobia
Does anyone know of other manufactures that make 22in, or larger mtn bikes?
