What size GT RTS1 frame size would be best for me? I’m 5ft 11.

16 inch Gt size would be playful but 18 would still be ok but more Xc style

If you wait a bit he’ll fit the 16.

I'm a snip under 5' 7" (pride prevents me from saying 5' 6" :D) and a 16" Zaskar has always been perfect for me... no idea if that translates to RTS's but assuming it's the same scale then something bigger would sound right.

I'm 5'11 and have a team rts in 18 that fits well. I've had a 16 and it was too small.

I'm 6'2" but ride a 18" Zaskar - they actually measure 20.5"
