I have an XL ripley on order at my LBS. Due in spring sometime (who really knows when it will show up). Thoughts on fit for someone who is 6-4, 35” inseam?

I’ll be able to try it when it arrives, but would hate to wait for it, finally try it and find it’s too small, especially bc then I’d be late to find something else with the delays folks are seeing.

Thanks for your advice!

I’m the same height. My Ripmo AF in XL doesn’t feel that big, sizing is very similar. Currently I’m at 50mm stem and seat slid back 10mm or so. 60mm stem might be better but I try not to change things too frequently.

I am 6'2" and have the V4 Ripley in an XL. If I were much taller I would not fit really great on it, honestly. Might need to bump up the stem length a touch. Everyone has a different preference for how they want their bikes to fit/feel but I would lean toward it being a little small for you.
