I'm currently looking to buy a 2013 Meta AM to replace my Blur LT and am concerned about the sizing. According to the Commencal website, someone my height (5' 9") should ride a Medium sized frame but my Blur LT is a medium and is too small for me. I have to run an 80mm stem on it to get the right positioning but that causes me to be too far over the front on descents.
The medium Meta AM has an effective top tube length of 23.4" whereas my Blur LT has an effective top tube length of 22.5". I am also looking at the large Meta AM frame but am concerned about the standover height as Commencal do not post this on their website. My inseam measurement is 32" or thereabouts but will need to confirm this later.
What are other people's experiences of the sizing of these frames and what else do I need to take into consideration before I order?
