Newbie, Tassajara, Sizing

Title basically sums it up. I'm a roadie looking to get dirty. Have been looking on CL forever and finally came up with this.

Quote:
I am selling my Tassajara. I bought it new when I lived in Colorado and since moving to the DFW area, I haven't really been on it. I do more road biking here. This bike has less than 80 miles total on it and all on that has been on pavement. The bike has never been wrecked, dropped or abused in any way.
If you want a medium sized hard tail bike at a great price, this is it.
I am 5'9 with 33 inseam and the bike fit me fine.
The photo shown is the website photo, but I can send pictures of the actual bike to those interested.
If interested, respond to the ad via email and I will get right back with you.
You you prefer, you can call, but you may have to leave a message.



I'm 6'2 190lbs with a 33.5" inseam. Is this bike too small or just right with a ~4" stand over (according to GFs site)? Read tons of reviews and they all look pretty good. He's asking $400 but I think he'll take $350 given the fact it's a 100 mile round trip for pick up.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Zack

I think it would work for you. It dosnt need to be prefect on a MTB. And your only going to ride around, not race where then a proper fiting would be needed.

get it and have fun! Its a solid bike

In My opinion, I rode an 18" Trek 4300 before I got my Rincon...and it was OK, but I much enjoy the bigger frame over the smaller one. But this is just personal preference.
