i am 5'5" and ride a 17.5" bike. is this too big? im primarily doing xc riding on easy to medium trails. no jumping. at least not anything serious, i plan to have kids in my future....
close to 2000
Im about 5'6/5'7 and my XC/commuter bike is 18, and the seat is raised on it. My DJ/urban bike is about 15.5 (smaller is better for jumping). The bike should fit you fine for XC, a larger frame is better for getting more pedalstrokes and using less energy to go faster.
Well this is all perspective. But that too big, at least from what I ride. I am 6'5 and sometimes a 19" bike to big
