Got my eye on the Yo on eBay.de.. Does anyone know the geometry of an L Fat? Looks to be about a 19.5"/20" seat tube which might be on the Leonid Stadnyk side for me.. I think I might need a M/L at 6'1"..?

Also, could someone provide a translation for the description? :oops:

800 Euros is a bit steep but it does look in awesome condition..?

Kingroon,

try this link

I'm about 6' and ride a M. It's a good fit but is on the small size. I reckon a M/L would be about right.

No idea what he's saying I'm afraid - Babelfish comes up a bit of a mess really! 800Euros just for a frame though, ouch...

As for sizing, this is from the '99 Fat brochure and might help - http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a218/ ... t9920C.jpg

EDIT: beat me to it John! Oh, and I'm 6' too and ride a M Yo, and it fits but is on the smaller side of fit!

Rock n roll.. Cheers John!

Yeah M/L it is then.. That black L one reminds me of Justin Loretz[?]'s one that was in MBUK once BITD.. He was riding around London I think, big photo in front of Picadilly? Pace RC35s..? Loved that bike.. Except I think his had a left/right hand side black/white fade?

If you're 6ft you should be on a ML.

just under 6' and ride a M Buck, you can see where the seat is on Johns pics from Cannock, and could go higher..
