5.4" 100 pounds large rocky mountian flatline

Do you have a hard time throwing your bike around or being comfortable?

It's a little bit more challenging, yes. But we got a really good deal on the bike from the dealer the difference between rocky mountians medium and large is only like 2 inches in frame sizes. Nope I feel 99.9 percent comfortable on it, the only challenging part is hitting corners fast. I am only 14 so I I'm still growing!
2" is massive.

6'6

235lbs

I ride a large canfield jedi. I was a little worried at first that a large wouldn't be big enough, but after one ride down mt.creek I fell in love with it.

Hi All!

Is a few centimetres of difference in top tube length matters/noticeable? I'm hesitating between a glory & demo, the glory has a bit larger effective top tube (by 3.5 cm) length. I'm 188 cm tall.

I'm not sure, it might make you bend over more to reach the bars I think.

U will feel a difference in riding position, depending on stem length as well, if it is too short u wont be agressive anymore, but a bit too top heavy feeling, and less in control

Should I choose a DH bike based on my weight? I was looking into a 2012 specialized status 1 size small. I am 5ft 2 and 100 lbs, just getting into DH, coming from XC.

And if I could, I would love to test ride one. My local mountain MT creek> is using specalized demo 8.0 this season and they look very smilal to the status.
thx
Go off height, Sprig rates can be adjusted for rider weight variances. I'm a long armed lanky motherf*cker and ride a large because of it..

5,9 weight 135, Specialized SX 09 and Medium frame.

6'2", 185.

2014 Giant Glory 2, Large. Fits Almost perfect. I havent ridden it much but can tell its a fast bike and still good for jumping. Pedals very well for a big bike.

2012 Scott Voltage FR20, Long. Fits a tad small, wish it was an inch longer in the top tube. Very good for jibbing, and its not too short where I hit my knees.awesome freeride bike, best I've ever ridden in the jumps. Doesnt pedal the best but its not the worst.

Alright thanks, i will. Would you happen to know anything about the 2012 specalized status I, good or bad? It will be my first DH
Thanks
just a bit of warning though, frame sizes of a model have slightly different geometry to accommodate the rider expected to ride it, so the spring rate can change to be used for a heavier or llighter rider, but some companies also alter the linkage a bit to either be liighter or heavier feeling for frames. I too am a light guy at only abt 155 even though I'm 6'2" so the frame I ride is a large, but a non specific linkage, only a variable spring weight. Hope this helps!
