I am 5ft 10, which is 178cm.
In 2009 the size chart had the medium cut off at 5ft 10, large starting at 5ft 11.
But that was with a 110, or maybe 100mm stem as standard.
I use an 85mm stem on the large, with uncut Easton Haven alloy bars, which seems a good fit and it is more stable than the medium which has narrow, XC, bars.
I think if you are slightly taller than me then a medium would definitely be too small unless you are planning on wide bars with a 110mm stem!
The changeover to painted rear triangles was 2010 but I think I found a link where it was an option to still have the polished rear triangle.
I think this frame is also worth $600 dollars trade in against a new Turner as well, with the Turner-4-Turner program - although you have to go straight to Turner US for that. I queried it regarding my 2009 flux, which hasn't got the beefed up bits on.
