    New question here. Another Trance sizing dilemma

    Sorry for another post on this subject but I've read all that I can find and still unsure how to go. I'm considering swapping my components from a 19" Dawg Deelux to a Med Trance X0 frame that I can pick up at a good price (they only have med, no large so it's med or nothing). I'm 6' and want a bike that can climb and decend. I'm not a banzai dh'er but want to be able to wick it up a bit and have fun on trails that are at times at least semi-technical. The threads I've read would lead me to believe I will like the med but I'm just not sure. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks: confused:

    Go by the top tube measurement.
    Measure your stem, and your top tube.
    Compare numbers to the Trance frame.

    If I had to guess, M would be too small. I'm 6'1" and M is too small for me.

    I am 6ft wiht a 31" inside leg and the medium Trance X0 is cool for me with room to adjust if ness.

    Top bike whichever you go for.

    Go w/ the large I'm 6' as well and a medium will feel cramped
