Howdy Everyone, I'm new to the community and need a quick tip.

I'm interested in purchasing the Cannondale Quick 4 as a gift for someone, the only trouble is I can't tell which size (between S,M,L, and XL) is most appropriate for them. The website has a size chart that corresponds to each size, but it's I'm still having troubles determining which size is suitable. The guy I intend on getting it for is 6'1 and a half. Here's a link to the bike.

Any comments and tips would be really helpful.

Cheers

Purchase them the bike with the size to be determined when they show up at REI to be fitted?

The X-Large is 51cm. Which is a 20 inch bike. A jumbo is 57cm. Which is 22 inches. A 20 inch bike should fit a person that is around 5'10-6'1 and a 22 inch should fit a person that is around 6'1-6'3. Do not get one that is smaller than a X-Large. If it was me, I would get a jumbo (22 inch). I'm 5'10 and I ride a 19 inch. He is 6'1 (which is 3 inches taller than me). A 22 ich is 3 inches taller than a 19 inch.
