seriously, no one will say a word?:biggrin:
 
Firstly, it will be too small

Secondly, whilst it's an ok bike, you'll soon be wanting something better.

And there are a few other odd things, such as why it has 28mm tyres, and the wierd gear levers.

For £200 you can get something really really so much better second hand...

oh well, the first bike is plain black and it doesnt really scream 'I'm gay'...so def no for me, but...with the too small thing...I dont like you said that...keep in mind I will be using it for short comuting, not for a race, so maybe it will me OK?
 
Honestly mate, I'm a couple of inches shorter than you and use a 56cm. It depends on your leg length and allsorts, but at 6'1" I reckon you should be looking at very least at a 23" frame...

Mountain bike geometry is different to road. Get a second hand bike with that kind of money, you'll get a much better deal.

I agree. You definitely need a frame bigger than a 56cm.

+1 I'm quite a bit shorter (5ft 9 1/4in) and a professional bike fit recommended 56cm for me as did an on line fit I ride 54cm and 55cm bikes which are a tad smaller but purely going by height you'd need a bigger frame.
