Is the seller close enough for you to go and visually check out the bike, or someone you know close enough? Those frames and forks are really nice and, it it fits you, quite comfortable. Buying a bike unseen and without a test ride is always a bit of a gamble. You almost always have to put some money into one to fix or change out components/parts. If you can do that yourself, the cost is minimized.
Thanks, a big fit makes more sense why theyd have the height listed as taller. I can go check it out (its a local seller), just a bit nervous that if its subtly too big for me I might not be able to tell since Im pretty inexperienced.
