Rune V2 sizing: Small vs. Medium
I'm trying to figure out which size I should go for and have read that the top tube feels a bit long on the medium V2. I'm currently 5'8" with a 30" inseem and still ride a V1 medium since '09 and that size is fine. However, I did add the 2 deg. Works cups with a 50mm stem and 30" bars. Compared to my 2012 medium Transition Bandit 29er (my go to bike with same stem and bars), the reach still feels a bit longer. In other words, the Bandit's cockpit fits me perfectly.
First off, any new V2 riders change to a smaller frame? I'm comparing the small V2 reach of 393mm vs. the medium Bandit's reach of 391. The stack on the small V2 is 582mm vs. 627.6mm on the Bandit.
My V2 build will be identical to my V1, but may experiment with 650B in the future.
Any input would be appreciated.
