    New to mountain biking

    Was riding BMX by the age of 10, but as I got older those BMX bikes seemed to get smaller and uncomfortable.

    Haven't ridden in about three years until today. Picked up a DB Response Sport XS14 as sort of an impulse buy.


    Probably not the smartest choice since I don't know much about these bikes, but I do have a week to return it if you guys change my mind... which I'm hoping you don't.

    If it's the right size for you and in good shape, go out and ride the heck out of it!

    I am curious about the sizing.

    It is a 14", and I'm 6'1". I feel fine on it, but then again, I have nothing to compare it to.

    Best recommendation, and everyone here will tell you the same, visit your local bike store and have them measure you.
    Unless my memory is playing tricks on me, I am 6'1" as well and my previous mountain bike was a 19.5".
