I have a 17 Farley 7 XL (21.5) that I love to death. I am 6'1" and it is big for me. I am actually getting ready to downsize to a 19". I rode a 19 a couple weeks ago and really liked it. The 21.5 is for a taller guy for sure. She is stable and rides good. I just like how the 19 was a better fit. I will be selling the 21.5 around August when the new 2020 comes out. That being said , if this was a 19 I believe I would keep it forever. Most fun I have had on 2 wheels! The 2019 in 19" are sold out. I work at a trek dealer P/T and already have my order in. In my opinion Trek really nailed the fatty. The 7 Is a great bang for the buck unless you are looking for a rigid fork.
