    Trance 29'r Sizing

    I am 5'11" and 150 pounds. I just can't seem to figure out what size Trance to get. I have read everything I could but just nothing straight forward and to the point. I like a ride a short stem (60mm) or less and I will not be riding the stock Contact Dropper post, I will be on a KS LEV which has 0 degree setback where as the giant has 12mm offset. So because I will be changing the post and stem it makes me think I will need a size large. But I just don't know. I have ridden both and they both feel great, I just can't make up my damn mind! Help please mtbr!

    I was on the same Boat. I am 5'10.5" And 142 lbs. I rode both Large and Med and I went with the Med. You really have to test it out .

    I decided to go with a medium after a long test ride last night. Bike is sooo fun and accelerates so much faster than the LTc!

    BTW, anyone know what Q-Factor for XX1 crankset?

    5'11" and 155# and I went with the medium. I put the seat pretty far forward on the rails and the bike feels perfect to me. Hope this helps..

    I'm 6'0" with really long arms and went with the large. I'm going back and forth between the 90mm stem and a 50mm to see what I like more.

    Im 5-11.5 and ride a medium. I had ordered a large but the shop convinced me to try the medium. It feels perfect.

    I also rode a medium Jet 9.
