    What size Klein am I?

    Back in 95-96 or so I had an adroit (?19" - don't remember). It had a stock MC2 (?90mm long), but I felt like it was too short and was going to fall over the handlebars when going downhill. I ordered a new MC2 that was longer and had a higher rise, overall it seemed to fit me ok.

    Fastforward to 2007, I ride a Kona Major Jake 56cm with a 90mm stem and top tube around 55cm as well. I'm surfing ebay for an old klein again because I miss it - but don't know what size I would need. The Klein site shows that S-small attitude frame has a top tube of 55cm but they list my height (6'1) as borderline L-XL. What's going on here?

    All I can say is that I'm 6'1" and ride a Cannondale Rush, large works fine for me.

    Whatever size feels best.

    sizing for mountain bikes in cm is different then sizing a roadbike in cm. so you wouldnt ride a 56 cm mtb even though you ride a 56 cm road/cross bike. Look for a L/Xl so like 19-21 inches
