tell me about it, shops were all too keen to sell you the bike regardless of size for a long time...or at least had little no idea about sizing for mtbs.
my first real mountainbike (frame only) an orange clockwork 19" from a reputable shop 1990?
my 2nd real mtb a 15" orange clockwork from the same shop, "oh yeah pretty funny you bought that 19" 1991/92
Yeah. My first Clockwork was a 19" back in 1994ish when I was 14 and a lot shorter than I am now.
My current Clockwork is also a 19" and i'm 6 foot 1" now.
My local Orange stockist just wanted to unload what they had in stock back in 1994. I went in to buy a 17" satin black Clockwork and ended up with a 19" flouro orange one!
Loved it to death though - even if it did stretch my spine.
