I'm pretty set on getting the XTC composite 1, but would like some sizing advice.
I'm 5'9", long in the body, short in the legs & weigh 220lb. Normally I would be medium, but as the Giant has such a short wheelbase, I wonder whether the large with shorter 70-80mm stem would be better (looks like a 100mm stock. Am I right?). I have sort of demoed it (the medium), but the only test area was a fire road, which is poor really. I'm not used to the racy position & felt a bit too over the front wheel on a medium, even though the Giant test guy insisted that medium was my size. I ride all sorts, from very tight twisty forest singletrack to long XC treks.
What do you think? The medium just seems too short & twitchy, but I don't want a barge either.
