    Will try and e-mail some pics later. Standover is ok, not something I’m too concerned about, mud clearance however is terrible! I run a 2.2 tyre on the rear and there is not much room left. The guy I bought it from took the paint off the inside of the rear triangle while doing a very muddy 24hr event. He had it re-painted and now it is helitaped it is fine. Size wise I would have liked to have tried a large, but I have no complaints about how it rides. It flys up technical climbs and is comfy but very solid feeling for an all day ride. Downhill it tracks well with a Reba Team with 20mm bolt thru and doesn’t get knocked off line easily, I imagine that a 120mm fork and riser bar would be a better set up downhill but might compromise it’s climbing abilities. All in all a great bike and definitely a keeper. If you can get a ride on both sizes it might help, but they are as rare as hens teeth so good luck with that! If you are in Yorkshire, you are welcome to ride mine. Hope this helps.

    Just over 6ft and ride a large with 110mm SIDs, Enve 700mm(i think) carbon flat bars, 80mm stem and thomson straight post.

    Pretty much echo Andys comments top tube is on the higher side in terms of standover compared to my Solaris but not an issue for me and the mud clearance is not great i run a 2.25 Nobby Nic and would not go any bigger.

    Overall a really nice frame that rides very well particularly on the fast singeltrack stuff that i like to ride.

    Edinburgh area if you want to view a large
