Any tall people riding Kona Sutras /Kona Roves?

Hi all ,

Apologies for another sizing post . My dream tourer bicycle buying situation is not great in that none of the bike shops in my country stock large sizes for test riding . At the moment I'm considering a Kona sutra in its largest size , 61cm . I'm just a bit wary of toe overlap , heel hitting pannier and handlebars not being level with saddle where I would like them .I'm 6'2 and have size 13(US)12(UK) feet . The sutra has the exact same frame as the rove so if any one 6 '2 or over with a 93cm inseam or higher is riding one of these bikes please let me know how it's working out .

Thanks ,

J

I am 173 (5ft 8in) I got myself a 2015 Kona Sutra at the start of the year, so I can tell you a bit about it, I had issues with my toes connecting with the overhanging support wire for the fenders, I solved that by cutting off the excess, If you now its fine but if I was a little bit bigger my toes would contact the fenders on corners, however If you don't mind not having front fenders on the bike, like the Kona Rove, it wouldn't be a problem for you.
