Just picked up a De Kerf Ti soft tail and was wondering how good of a fit it really is...

I ride 19.5 fully rigid mountain frames... I have a couple in the 18.5 and 20.5 area but only because they are ultra rare Rocky Mountains that are mostly for display...

This De Kerf is 18"... Since its front and rear suspension should it fit me well? I was told that dual suspension frames (or even front suspension frames should be smaller...

What is everyone's input on this?

I attached some pics for reference...

Thx!

Have you tried riding it?

Bike sizing is such a personal preference, i doubt we'd be able to offer assistance. IMO, Dekerf frames are bigger than they are sized - if you get my drift..

I have a 17.5 Mountain and a slight bigger Soft tail and I can squeeze on both (I'm 6 ft btw).

Love the exposed Ti chainstays on that one though!
