Two questions on size and steel
I'm close to narrowing down my second mountain bike - my first was a crappy one that I won't even bother to mention, but it got me from point A to point B. I've moved a lot closer to a gigantic park nearby my new place, and plan to do riding in the trails there, and had two questions before I purchased my next bike.
Well before I ask, I think I've narrowed down my choice to a Rocky Mountain Blizzard.
1. I am 5"10 140lbs (a light weight according to most), and am unsure of what size frame to get. I was recommended to get an 18.5" frame, which felt comfortable, or a 17.5" frame which also felt comfortable.
2. I've also heard great things about steel bikes, but I just wanted to find out more feedback on steel frames, most particular the RM Blizzard. Any feedback on the bike would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!
