Mongoose Selous Gravel Bike

Can anybody add input about fit on these bikes.

Nashbar only carries them up to 56cm.

Im 6'2" with 34" inseam would a 56cm in that buke work? Or way too small.

I bet Nashbar is out of stock on the 58cm and 61cm.Contact CS and see when or if they are going to restock.
As the 56 is going to be to small.

I'm 6'2 1/2" with about A 33" inseam. 56 is going to be to small.I have the 58cm.Not many miles.
If you need any other stats for the frame just ask.Also A few other threads on the Selous Sport Gravel Bike her at BF.

I bought one, wanted a change from my previous hybrid. I'm 6'4" with a 34" inseam. I weigh 224# (sadly) I'm riding a 61 cm (marked XL on the front of the seat tube, guessing that means extra large). Anything smaller would present some problems for me. Still sorting out some adjustments, seat height, seat pitch, etc. but I like it.

Or, get the Nashbar cx1. On par with what you are looking at.
