    Trek Session 9.9 sizing

    Hi All,

    Please could someone give me some advice on the sizing of the Session 9.9. Im looking to purchase a frame but after reading the review in Dirt they commented that the large is to small for anyone above 5' 10" to 6'. I know the Dirt team (steve jones) likes long bikes so im wondering if thats just him saying the sizing is too small.

    Im 5' 9" and normally ride medium bikes but im wondering if I should order a large?

    Thanks

    These bikes run on the small side of things, however I felt comfortable being on a large 9.9 at 6'.

    5'9 and snug as a bug on the medium, friend has a large which just seemed too stretched out for me. Best thing to do is to get on one and see for yourself.

    Thanks guys I finally got on one yesterday and the medium is about 10mm shorter than the 2013 Giant Glory in the Reach length and the large is only another 20mm longer so ive ordered a large and if it feels slightly to long I can play with the stem lengths

    Thanks again!

    Hi,
    Just wanted to ask how did you feel on Large?

    I'm 6'1 and can't decide medium or large. Although everyone suggests large for me, I want to feel confident on the bike, and look for control around the bike on jumps&drops etc.

    Cheers

    I am 5'10" and ride a large session 9.9. Medium was way to short, could not move arrounf comfortably. I also sat on the new 27.5 session in medium, again, way to short in reach and TT
