I'm 6'1 with a 34inch inseam, I recently test rode a 19in 29er and 21in 29er, both felt like a good fit, I guess I'm kinda in between the sizes. I just don't know what size would be better for me as far as getting technical, is it better to go smaller or bigger on a mountain bike?

Responded on

from what i have heard a smaller person can ride a bigger bike, but not the other way around. Also i have a friend who is an inch taller than you (same inseam) and rides a 21" 29 hardtail. I would go for the 21" if after a while you think its a bit too long you can always get a shorter stem.

happy riding

I am looking to buy my first REAL mountain bike. Is this a pretty solid bike to start with? If i am 5'8'' 200Lbs what size should I get? Thanks.

A medium. This 'is' the bike. German made. Agile. Climbs like a mountain goat. Screams on the down hills. This bike 'will' make you a better rider.

Great bike for the money

I did a fair amount of research on options for hardtail mountain bikes with some type of XT/LX level package. Aside from one Cannondale that was slightly more expensive, I could not find a bike at the level of the Focus Black Forest 3.0 for under $1,800. Most were solidly around $2,500. So to get this bike for $1,229 is frankly amazing. I bought one for my wife, then had bike envy and bought another for myself. They seem great so far. It seems US buyers can take advantage of the fact that Focus is not so well-known in the US, but they are well-respected in Europe.

Focus Black Forest 3.0

Amazing bike, unsurpassed customer service. It would be foolish to buy anywhere else! Made in Germany, very agile, climbs like a mountain goat, and screams on the downhills (really good wheel bearings). Some bolts come loose, but that's pretty much normal for a new bike. This bike 'will' make you a better rider.
