Best bike for a tall guy
« on: June 02, 2007, 02:21:12 AM »
I'm a little taller than most of my friends, measuring in at 6'4". What bike would you recommend for someone of my size?

I'm looking for a bike I can throw in the back of the pickup and take out to the hardpack whenever. I used to ride when I was a kid, but havent ridden in years. I want something reliable but not necessarily brand new.

I would suggest going to a store and sitting on a few bikes to get a feel for what style is comfortable to you. Then go from there.

a nice thing to have if you're tall no matter what bike you're on is handle bars.  the tallest bars I've found are the pro taper pastrana fmx bend.  they're real tall, and pretty narrow.  if you're tall, chances are you have big hands too.  if you have a problem with your grips feeling too skinny, try the progrip rally grips; a must have for big hands
