    Hey! and help required with fitting

    First of all, I want to say hi to everyone here at mtbr - longtime reader of the forums, but never needed anything so this is my first post.
    Anyway, my current bike is too small and I've finally saved enough to get something my own size.

    I'm thinking of a chinese carbon 29er, and found a good deal on a frame. Unfortunately, I don't know which size I should get. I'm 186cm tall with a 34.5"inseam (crotch to ground). I went to a couple of LBS to try the Scott Scale 900s, but they never had any XLs to try out. I seem to fit OK on the L, but some part of me wants some reassurance that I should get the 19"chinese carbon frame, instead of the 21".

    I've attached the geometries of the frames I'm looking at, and just want to know which one would best fit me. If anyone could take a look at them, it would make me quite happy. Also, input on crank and stem length would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all,

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Any benefit gained from getting the next size up and a short (<70mm) stem?
