    needs help about sizing

    I going to buy a carbine but I'm not sure about sizing I'm tall 173cm which size that should fit for me? S or M, please advice.

    My idea's medium size with 50-60mm stem but I'm not sure.

    Thank you.

    The Carbine and its alu counterpart the Tracer VP have shortish TT lengths. I am 188cm tall and my large VP is about as small as I want to go with a 24" ETT & 80mm stem. When in doubt longer TT with shorter stem is your best bet. So I would say go medium.

    on a 6.6 would a medium work for someone just under 6' tall?

    Not the same thing but I'm riding a small Tracer 29 with a 70mm stem and I stand 167.5 cm. I've test ridden the 275 in small and found it to fit perfectly and feel much quicker than my T29.

    I am the same height and rode a Medium with a short stem and it was perfect

    I'm 6-3 and I just bought an xl 2010 Tracer VP with a 100mm stem and I love it but it does not feel any bigger than my large 2001 Tracer with a 90mm stem, but it does let me sit more upright. I would try to test ride one before buying a brand new frame.

    You want a medium. I am the same height and wouldn't want any smaller.
