    Smile CUBE Stereo 160 SIZE Help please

    Im planning on getting a 2014 cube stereo 160mm race in a couple of months. The speed at which last year's stock sold so quick Im keen to pre order , but im not sure about Medium versus Large.

    What do current owners thinnk about the 18" vs 20" sizes in this bike please?

    I am 183cm, inside leg 84cm, ride style in about average- 2-3 hour aggressive XC/enduro. Keen to fit 60mm stem

    Cheers

    I'm 182cm and inseam 88cm. Went to 20" frame. The SL model comes with 125mm drop Reverb stealth. I had to lower the seat post to lowest position.. So if buy 20", buy 100mm Reverb. I think otherwise it would be too high for you. If you drive with normal seatpost this won't be problem.
    it feels high and short (with 125mm Reverb) I have 60mm stem now and I'm about change it to 70mm to get more weight to front wheel. Stock stem 20" frame was 85mm.
    great bike! See my build in this 27.5 thread.

    Thank you for your reply! Very useful. I think 20" is probably going to be right for me. Will check out your build
    Cheers
