Yesterday I was tuning up my wife's bike to prepare for our trip to Seattle. She has a 2004 16" Trek 4300 and besides it not being for rugged trail use, it's a pretty decent bike (except the crappy shock). Well, I decided to raise the seat up and ride it around a bit. WOW! I was shocked, I fit on the bike almost perfectly. The reason I'm so shocked is because I usually ride a 19" bike (although on my Stumpjumper FSR they claim the Large is 21"). I'm 6'2" and was able to get good extension while pedaling and it was really fun being able to wheelie so easily. My wife is 5'7" and I only had to raise the seat up about 1" from where she had it. This has me seriously considering a much smaller bike when (and if) I decide to get a Kona Coiler. I had at least expected my knees to hit the stem, but there wasn't even any trouble there... Anyway, I guess there's no real point to this post other than to say how much fun a smaller bike can be (it's so much easier to do an endo to catwalk and to lift the bike for a jump).
