    Trail sl 29er sizing.

    Hi guys.

    What is the size of your trail sl 29er?
    I'm 5'11 and leaning toward a medium as I think a large would be kind of too big, not flickable enough.
    Thanks for feedback!

    Hi,
    I have been lurking for a while but This is actually my first post. Im 5'11 as well, with a 30 to 31 inseam. I originally purchased the 29er trail sl4 and the guys in the bike shop fit me into a medium, mainly as a result of the standover height. The bike had a defect in the paint so I took it back and exchanged it for a trail sl2 26, paying the difference. I personally felt the 26 handled much better than the 29er. Either way, the 26 I was fit into was a large. You should probably go to the store and try out the different sizes. These were the sizes that fit me best.

    My trail SL4 is a large. I'm 6'2", so a medium might be good for you. The XL was to close to the berries for my comfort. Plus it just felt to big. A large was perfect for me. Buy like JJIV said, go to a shop and ride em. Pick which your more comfortable on.

    i just got a LARGE sl4 29er a few weeks ago when my LBS had a sale. Im 6' and dont know my inseam. I like it a lot. Like they say, go test ride and see what fits better. Some people like larger bikes and some like smaller to move around more. I rode the Trek mamba and did not like the bike at all and then tested the SL4 and loved it!

    Like the 3 guys above me....I'm 6'3" with a 34/35" inseam and my large SL4 fits quite comfortably.
