    2005 Truth- new design?

    Is the 2005 Truth frame shown on the Interbike site a new design or just a small frame size?

    I ride a 2004 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR. It is a great bike but at 5'10" I fell exactly in between frame size M and L. I bought a M, ~17".

    An 18" Ellsworth looks like it might fit me better.

    I'm curious if the sloping downtube style frame shown on the Interbike site is sized the same as the 2004 line currently shown on the Ellsworth homepage.

    That picture is of a 14" frame. I am almost certain it is a 14" anyhow. A few months back I saw a similar picture of the same frame and it was said that it was to cater for smaller riders.

    For a 5'10" rider an 18" Truth frame will suit you with the likes of a 110mm stem. FWIW I am 5'11" rider on an 18" Truth frame and a 120mm stem and for me it is the perfect setup in everyway. Nicely stretched out yet in control on the technical stuff.

    I completely agree

    with Trevor. I am 5"11 also and I am on a med Truth with a 120 stem. It fits like a glove. I can't believe how awesome this bike is. A 110 would probably be perfect for you on a med frame.

    That is an XS frame BTW
