    2013 Trance X29 1 - size question (L or M)

    Hi there,

    Thinking about upgrading my current TX2 26er (2012) for a TX29 1.

    Main question is around size.... what else is new :-)

    My current TX2 on 26ers is a medium and feels slightly cramped; first instinct is to go with a large TX29 1.

    I am 5"10 - 32.

    Would a large TX29 1 be the right/better fit if in-between L and M?

    Thank you for any suggestion.

    I'm 5'10" and owned a large TX26 with a 60mm stem which fitted very well (also ride a medium ReignX). Medium TX29 was my pref after trying both. Compare reach and ETT to get an idea (on paper) how they differ to your current ride.

    I'm just under 6' and I ride a medium TX29er. My 2013 Glory is also a medium, I like the cockpit to be some what compact I guess. I will tell you it's a great bike, I like it alot!

    Just to mix things up... I'm just under 6' and after riding both a M and a L, I went with the L with a 70mm stem.

    I'm also just under 6', and currently ride a Large Anthem 26er with 90mm stem.

    After several stem swaps, I decided the Medium with a 100mm stem was the best fit for me. The L was just too big, even with a 70mm stem, and the M felt much more nimble, flickable, though slightly cramped, but not a deal breaker.

    I have 2 other friends, who are 5'11", and they also preferred the Medium Tx29 with 100mm stem.


    but, I finally decided that neither size fit me as well as a Large Tallboy... but that's getting off topic.

    Funny, I'm 6' w/ 32" and prefer the Large. Coming from an xc background, I'm more comfortable a little stretched out on the bike.

    6' here with a 34" (pants, not actual) inseam. Test rode the medium and large. Couldn't use the dropper post on the medium as it was well above the min insertion mark. Debated removing the post and going with a solid post. Rode the large more and decided to go that route and keep the dropper. My other 29ers are both mediums (karate monkey and Felt Nine Elite). I bought the Giant for rougher trails, more all day stuff, so the larger bike feels better in that situation anyway.

    I just rode both a medium and a large trance x today at my LBS.. I first tried the medium and it felt really good, almost perfect. then I sat on the large, and it felt even better. i'm 6'0 with 32" pants (not actual inseam) i'm nearly positive ill be going with the large.
