I'd go a 2T too - I am a 250 man.
Pete...so tempted by the 300 🤩

I recommend a fan kit for any of the 4Ts as well.

So to your original post, if you can get a 390 go for it !

Or wait 9 days and see if the MY19 BETAs have any significant changes, we should see the MY19 bikes in August, but most likely September.
If I found a 17/18 with all the fruit and low Kay's I'd probably grab it otherwise it will be a 19 and with a thermo.

My head says 2T but my heart wants 4 this time...your totally right though!
