    Santa Cruz Bronson sizing help

    I am5'10 and in between a medium and a large. I like throwing my bike around with a short stem and ride wide bars should I size up or down? I have always sized down on niners but their large starts at 5'11 and goes to 6'3 so i go medium witha 70 stem but Santa Cruz goes from 5'10 to 6'1 and I really want to run a 50mm stem

    I'm 5'10" as well. I went with a large. Running 50mm stem with bars at 750mm. Fits great.

    What size did you go for? I'm 5'11" and currently ride a Large Blur LTc with a 50mm stem.

    740 bars 50mm stem with 10* rise. If I was an inch taller no way would I have gone medium. Put it this way I am at the complete top of a medium and I am right at 5'9.5" no shoes. But I do have long arms which makes me feel like I could have ridden a large no problem. I have just always ridden mediums, my previous bikes were Niners and their large is way too big but Santa Cruz bikes are a tad smaller I feel

    If you get a large and don't like it I will trade you frames because I really could go either way. "As long as its a carbon tennis ball"
