    Hello, this is Lukas from Germany, Leipzig!

    I want to buy an Evasion frame (formerly known as ‘Evasion’), rohloff it and then go through all of Europe with it.

    I am 190 cm and my legs are quite long. What size do you recommend? Will there be an XL Evasion?

    Hey Lukas- fellow long-legged guy here but I’m quite a bit shorter and riding a XM size. I bet that standover height wouldn’t be a problem on the Large but you might want to measure your public bone height to be sure. Other than that, maybe you can measure the stack and reach of a bike that fits you well so you can see what adjustments you might need to make with stem or handlebars.

    I’m not sure if this is helpful but I’m the same height with similarly long legs. I ride a L Dreamer with 19.5 cm between the top of the seat post clamp and the top of my saddle.

    Get the largest size they make. I am exactly 6′ tall (183cm) and the large fits me really well. If your legs are a few cm longer you’d still be fine, but probably just need a longer stem.
