    Keith - Suggestion on Phantom frame size

    Hi, my name is Stefano and I am writing from Milan, Italy. I would like to buy a Banshee Phantom frame but I am a little bit undecided between M or L size. I am about 1,81 cm tall with about 88 cm inseam. I already own a 160 650b enduro bike and I would like to change my steel front suspended 29r with an enjoyable and pedaling full suspended 29r like the Phantom. Which size would you suggest?
    Thank You in advance for your reply,
    best regards
    Stefano

    Keith - Suggestion on Phantom frame size

    Not to derail your thread by I am also looking for size advice from Keith.
    Me: 6'2" (pretty sure my inseam is 33")
    Currently ride a large Rune V1 with a 50mm stem and it feels pretty good and I love it on the downhills...climbing I do sometimes feel a bit cramped but not bad. When I looked at geometry between V1 and V2 both size L the V2 seems a little bigger in the cockpit, lower, slacker, shorter chain stays. I'm right on the cutoff between L and XL and without being able to demo can you give me some insight?

    Does a V2 L feel bigger or smaller than a V1 L?

    Stefano.
    I am the same height as you and I ride a Large Phantom. I also owned a large 2015 Spitfire which at times felt a little cramped in cockpit length... something not felt with the Phantom.
    Why did I sell the Spitfire... it became redundant. I was so much quicker and happier on the Phantom. Riding within my own limits, there is nothing I can ride on a Spitfire that I can't also ride on the Phantom.

    Cheers
