See now all the pictures you lot are posting up make you bikes look quite slack at the front whereas the 09 I had felt quite steep.
Im 6 foot 1 and a bit and found the large to short in the top tube even with a 100mm stem, was quite disheartening really as I had saved loads of cash to buy it and had to sell it within 3 weeks as I just couldnt get right on it.
The xl Im getting is near enough the same size wise with my large stumpy ive just sold., not sure what it is with the stumpys, like the look of them but they feel "wooden" if that makes sense whereas even though it was to small the suspension on the 5 spot felt amazing!
here she is/was.
The one im buying has full deore 30 speed, hope wheel and rev 150mm forks, looking forward to getting it now !!
