So I've got a number of road bikes and have a good sense of fit there.
But I've never had a mountain bike, and am now building up an old Diamondback Sorrento as a singlespeed, to ride on trails. It's got horizontal dropouts and no derailer hanger. Gearing is 38/20 if you were wondering.
I'm 6'5" and have large bikes, and this one is no exception. It has a 59cm top tube, and I've got the seatback seatpost (I have long femers) and a 120mm-extension stem with 5-degree rise.
I'm looking for some quick feedback on the fit setup of this bike. I have no pics of me riding it, but just a picture from the side. The bars are way below the saddle, but it's a comfortably aggressive position (as much as I can tell while riding circles in my driveway since I haven't installed the brakes yet) and I'm wondering if this looks within normalcy for a suspensionless mountain bike. Thanks.
My Schwinn Le Tour commuter is the only other bike I've had with a flat bar, and the bar is much higher (but also further forward) on that bike - there's a 63cm top tube and I'm using a 90mm negative-rise stem. But that bike isn't for aggressive riding, just a comfortable cruising position.
