    Django 29 owners. what size frame?

    Gonna buy a Django 29 frame in a couple weeks. Can"t decide on a medium or large. Riding a large evil following with a reach of 17.3 and it does"nt seem that long to me.The medium Django also has a reach of 17.3 so I'm leaning toward a large Django. I'm 5ft 10 was looking for some info. thanks

    At 5'10, you could probably ride either depending on your preferences, barring any limb abnormalities you haven't mentioned.

    I'd agree with Udyr that you could go either way and are probably right at the split for medium/large. I'm 5'9" and I'd choose the medium because I don't have extremely long arms.

    I am about 5'9" or so, 32" ish inseam, but with a short torso (16") and reeeeally long arms. I have a substantial plus ape index. Think orangutan. Anyway, I tried both the medium and the large, I went with the large and I'm very happy. It feels great on regular rolling singletrack. On steep descents there have been a few times when the shorter reach of the medium would have been preferable, but I was realistic about what I'm riding now, and what I'll be riding over the next 5-10 years as I breach the 50 age

    I'm on a stock GX, alloy version. Oh and I have their little headset spacer installed under the head tube, but I might swap that out in favour of changing the fork travel to 140.
