What size Jake the Snake?(3 posts)

What size Jake the Snake?Colin S.

Hi. I'm 5'10" and have a 32" inseam. I've tried a 56cm Surly and it feels to big with its 57cm TT. Would a Kona with a 55cm Kona w/ a 54cm TT be a better fit? Thanks.

I am an inch and a half taller than you, with the same inseam - I have that size Jake with a slightly longer than standard stem - so sould be pretty good for you

I'm 5'11", and on a good day my inseam is also about 32"; I had to go with the 52cm Jake, as the 55 left virtually no clearance over the top tube. I'm using a 120mm stem instead of the spec'd 100mm, and it's a good fit. (That'd be just a guideline, since I have a long torso.)
