    Evo Sizing Help

    I demoed an Evo today and I loved it. I rode a medium and it seemed a bit small though. It had a real short stem and I caught my shorts on the gear shifter once! I also had the seat post up pretty far.

    I am 5'11.5" and seem to be right in between the large and medium. Has anyone else with an Evo had this problem? Which way did you go? I enjoyed the smaller frame on the downhill for sure and it handles really well. Will I lose some of that with the larger frame?
    What do we want? TIME TRAVEL! When do want it? THAT'S IRRELEVANT!

    Awesome. Where did you demo it? I would recommend a Large EVO - but I hope you can send me an e-mail at alan@chumbaracing.com so we can talk a little bit about set up to make sure the bike still remains exceptional for downhill.

    I demoed the bike in Phoenix AZ. The Demo truck was parked outside of Cactus Bikes. I emailed you about possible sizing. Thanks for the help.
