Thinking about buying a fastback but can't find one to test ride... Let me know how your fasback fits you. I ride an 18" mtn. bike. Thanks!

5'11, 32" inseem, and I have a Large. I also ride a Large GF Sugar, if that's any help. My seat is waaaaay jacked up, in fact, i flipped my stem over last night due to the huge saddle to bar difference. I don't think that it was too much, but it was very aggressive for long rides. I'll see how the new set up works for awhile. If you are considering any other size i would go with the XL.
BTW, I have a Factory and love it (it's very light, if you care). I'm just a mtb'er that uses the road to train so i can't offer any expert roadie fit advice. good luck.

Well, I'm 5'7 and ride a medium. It's definitely comfortable for me. Love my fastback, it's a Limited.

I'm 5'8", 29.5" inseam. I test rode both medium and large and I liked the larger one better. After changing to a shorter stem (from 13cm to 10cm), I felt very comfortable on the bike.

Just like the other post, you may want to consider the XL.

BTW, I walked into supergo today and they had the fastback factory on a marked down sales for only $1199.00. What a deal!
