    Did you ride shore, drops, etc? - everything is comfortably?

    Probably will work for freeride type of stuff. I am 6'2" and ride a large for everything. I test rode a medium and it was too small for me.

    I'm 5'10" and fit a medium perfectly as a trail bike. If I used it for slopestyle (would also require some new skills) I might use a small, but for all around use (XC-lift served) it's perfect.

    I'm 6'2" and the large feels perfect. If I was doing slopestyle stuff (LOL) then maybe a medium would work... I say go large!

    i live in texas so no shore .. haha .. so far i have only ridden it on one XC ride, i just built it last friday night .. i'm more legs though, so i feel most comfortable on a toptube in the 23.5" range .. i used to ride a large preston which had a 23.8 ETT, and even though i had a 50mm stem and seat as far forward as it would go, i would still sometimes get hung up behind my seat with the post in XC mode

    I am 6 with very long inseam. I ride a Medium Reign X with a telescopic seatpost.
    It feels perfect! Ive got a 60mm stem on there and it is good for long climbing, descending super technical stuff and everything else.

    For me, the large would be too big, but remember I am more leg than anything else.
    I had a large SX Trail before and never felt at home on it. It felt like hauling an oil tanker down the hill.

    I'm 5,8 (with a long torso) and ride an med/18" ReignX for FR/DH/AM (with a 50mm stem), so the Med should work great for you for FR (for AM go Lg). Change the stem/bars if you need to adjust the fit. With the small X you would never get the seat high enough to pedal.

    Yeah, the small is tiny.

    Get the M definitely, it will be very flickable and it can also climb, if you need to.

    Greetings
