Hello, all! Can someone give me some guidance? I'm a former (17 years ago) mini-triathalon-er. My mount was a Cannondale R500. I've also owned a C-dale mtn bike since then. I've always liked Cannondale, and want to get back into riding, specifically mountain biking. I'm on the threshold of buying a Jekyll, but I'm not sure what size I need since I'll be buying it sight unseen from eBay. I'm 5-9 with a 30" inseam. A previous post advised someone of a 5-7 stature that they'd need a medium.
Will a large fit me and my dimensions without being too long, or should I go for medium?
Also, when I asked a co-worker about her opinion of Cannondale, her reply was, "Oh. You're getting a crack-and-fail?" I'm a die-hard Cannondale fan, but are my sentiments unfounded by Cannondale's standards of today?
