Hi p4p5, I got mine too the m team orbea. It feels huge compared to my x10 can't wait to get out on it this weekend. The water bottle is it side loading or can you get away with normal cage? Only looking at topeak ninja with the pouch.

Hi.
I got sideloading cage. Loads from the right. I got it from mate of mine and I don't know the brand. Specialized makes sideloading cages though. 600ml Camelbak podium ice bottle fits good. I guess you could get away with normal one. But it needs to be deep cutout with plenty of room on the side to twist pull it out.

The Speccy carbon zee cages are great. and the carbon ones are on $23 bucks on Specialized website right now. Left or right hand loading.

Hi guys,

I'm 5'8 and have demo'd the s/m rallon, It was wicked and its totally sold 29 for me (coming from a medium nomad c mk3).

The s/m rallon did perhaos feel a little short, although still awesome when pointed it down). I'm really interested in sizing up but don't want to loose too much playfulness and back wheel fun, just gain even more stability for the real steep stuff.

Has anyone my height gone large, and how does it handle the really steep stuff? Does the rear tyre hit your arse at all and does the bike feel unwieldy or like your a passenger? I didn't experience any of this on the s/m but not had the chance to demo a large.

Cheers!

Anyone know if/when Orbea will either release or include the little frame bag for the Rallon?

Doing everything I can to get gear on my bike and off my back (hip pack, bottle cage, hopefully the frame bag too).

What size you do you ride?

I have yet to get to test ride the Rallon. The ones that's available for me to test is XL, but according to Orbeas site and Lee Likes Bikes RAD calculation, the LG should fit be pretty bang on. But I have heard from others that are about my size that they think the XL fits them better. So what's your thoughts?

The Lee Likes Bikes RAD-calculation:
Length: 182 cm (6')
RAD: Recommended: 81,2 cm, LG: 80,8, XL: 83,5
Reach: Recommended: 43,0 cm, LG: 43,1, XL: 46,1
Rise: Recommended: 68,9 cm, LG: 68,3, XL: 69,7

Its hard to say.
Im 185cm tall, 91cm inseam and long arms, so it feels good for me. XL
I havent tried on before, so i was pretty happy when i got it and how it felt.

Having a XL bike to test is great as you'll know straight away if it feels right or if it's going to be too big, in which case the large will be fine. If the demo bike was a large you might always be wondering if you would have liked the XL.

For what it's worth I'm just over 6' 1" and I felt really comfortable on a XL Rallon, and also on a few other long travel 29ers with similar reach numbers, but trying these bikes also made me realise I would be ok with even more reach which is why I've gone for a 500mm frame (Bird Aeris AM9).

Yeah, guess I just have to wait for the snow to clear and go for a test ride.
