    Mission sizing for a 5' 6" guy?

    Thinking of ordering a 2010 Mission 1. Would a medium fit me at 5' 6"?

    Yea, but so would a small. And there are some smoking deals on small missions. I'd test drive one first.

    I'm 5'7 to 5'8 and I have owned both a small and now a medium Mission. On the small my seat post was maxed!!! I actually went with a 400mm thomson just to be safe and it was close to maxed for me. I also noticed my knees were close to the bars ( had a 90mm stem) as I moved around so a longer stem may have helped.

    On the medium I currently have, the seat post is better plus I can now run a shorter (70mm) stem which helps in more ways that just shortening the reach. I don't have much time on the medium yet because I just finished building it but I think the overall fit is better.

    Both would work for you. The Mission is an awesome bike. Good luck!
