    I'm 5'10 with approx 32" inseam. Bike felt good seated but cramped when standing, in particular for downhill sections. A size L would have been a better fit for me, but the standover could have been too close.

    I'm 5'7" I can fit on either small or medium. The m feels big but seems to be the better fit numbers wise and on the bike I just look more comfortable.
    Thanks for answering cos the information you gave is helpful to me

    I have about your dimensions and this is dead on. Feels perfect seated. Out of the saddle on descents I was ok with, however the bike does feel a bit unstable for me compared to many other bikes I have owned (it just feel short and I used to 29ers with long wheelbases). Really what bothers me about this bike is out of saddle climbing. the front end is very short and you are way out in front of the bike.

    The large was not an option it was huge.

    Its a really fun bike though and I love riding it. It's not the best bike I have ever owned, but its the one I'm keeping the longest. Odd I know.

    Sounds like you guys simply needed longer stems because you were not correctly sized to begin with. For out of the saddle grinding a short stem is never going to feel stable. You have to size an xc bike according to how it's going to be used. That means allowing sufficient room for out of the saddle grinding
