I have a question about mountain bike sizing. I have gone through the whole bike sizing process with a road bike and been to enough shops to think I have it down OK. Maybe 2" from ground to a little pressure on the crotch via lifting frame; leg slightly bent at bottom of stroke; handlebar blocking out front hub when in comfortable riding position with arms slightly bent.
I'm curious how this translates to mountain bike sizing? I'm not sure that the salespersons are not just telling me a bike fits because that is all they have in stock. How can I tell if a mountain bike is the proper height? Does the same rule apply for top tube length sizing (blocking hub)?
Also nobody responded to my Bad Boy thread! Any comments on using a Bad Boy or Bad Boy Ultra for a mountain bike? Good geometry? Bad Geometry?
