    Would this bike be too small for me?

    I'm wondering if this bike would be too small for me. It comes with a 19" frame at the discounted price. http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=2425

    I'm about six feet talk but have pretty long legs my pants inseam is 34 inches. I'm wondering if I could get away with the 19" frame or not. I used bikes direct for my hybrid bike and was happy with them but now want to get into some light mountain biking for a hobby

    You ought to go to a bike shop and ask to try an entry level 19" frame bike with the same size wheels that you're looking at. IMHO, a 19" frame might work for you, but you may have to change the seatpost and/or stem. That could add a little to the cost of the bike. Personally, I prefer a MTB on the small side.
