Travis Collier was ridin a 19.5 WTP Four Seasons for a while which was a street/ramp/dirt frame. If your a big guy, dont think these style frames can't
be ridden flat

Hey Shapsey - I just ride a 20" street frame. I like having a non-specific bike though and I'm only 5'10". I like having the extra room though.

I'd say hang in there for the Hoffman Strowler - new Kevin Jones sig frame. It's a 19.75" toptube and a 13.5" backend.

If you're used to riding longer frames then you won't like a lot of today's as the backends are really really short too and have geometry that is heavily front wheel trick biased.

I really can't think what else would suit you??? It seems like either a the Hoffman Strowler or a street frame. . .

Ask the guys on Flat Aus - Paradoxium is pretty clued up...

I'm a long legged 5ft 11" and ride a 19.2"/ 14" chainstays Dyno Slammer with A full zero setup.

It's very comfortable and I can totally feel a sub 19" frame it feels short.

Those sub 19" frames feel too small to me.

I also don't like a lot of the new frames there just too small. I think the Suelo Simple is a sweet frame if I bought a newer frame. It's all function and not gheyed out with fruity bent bars going all over the place.

Definately go for Hoffman Strowler. As much as I like St Martin, I have a feeling a Hoffman will be stronger. Half of the other longer frames are brakeless too , and as you run rear brakes its either St Martin or Hoffman.

I called Trickbits today (Australian Distro), They said stock wont be in till decmeber and they couldnt tell me a price on the high end frames at the moment. 

I Email Flatland fuel to find out what time they are due to arrive as it is this month sometime and I want to get a Strowler in 19.75" in Yellow. Also looking at profile 150mm cranks with new 18tooth profile sprocket.

I should be set for awhile then...  Just got to learn to ride again...
