I feel a bit weird saying this after being a committed Kona person.... but I want to buy a GT.

I'm a weird fit - 5'10" with a 30" leg - so any suggestions re frame size?

And models? The Zaskar seems THE bike, but what else should I look at? Oh - and I'm happy with rigid forks, and I'm 220lb so strength is bit of a priority. I don't care if the bike is pre-trigger shifting - in fact I'd prefer lever shift if I could find it. I'm not using the bike for hardcore mtbing - just zooming around backroad, farm tracks, runs through forest - the stuff I can find on my doorstep.

Suggestions/emotional support?

Zaskar would be the bike , 18" version would be what you need.

Funnily enough I may be selling my 1997 frosted red frame soon if your interested :) It's a little big for me ride sweet on the road I have not taken it off road myself yet.
