Considering pulling the trigger on a Meta AM or SX for the rest of the summer/abroad riding season!
Sizing is a bit of a headscratch though....doesn't look like I'll have the chance to demo before ordering the frame...
At 5'10, I'm generally happy with an ETT of around 600mm with a 50mm stem...this puts me on either a Medium AM or Large SX? as it seems the SX has a shorter cockpit...
But, the standover on the Large SX is obviously higher and the wheelbase will clearly be longer due to the HA difference...
Are there any Large SX riders out there? I'm just a bit worried that it will be/feel like quite a big bike for general singletrack tomfoolery?
The Medium is 580mm ETT (old medium meta sizing)....but I'd probably need to run a 70mm stem....which is not idea really.
Currently ride a 17" Orange Five with 36s/offset bushes so already at 66 HA and relatively slack....but the bike still feels quite small?
Interested to hear any owner comments/cockpit set up details?
