    Hi, anyone out there also 5' 11" with a 30 inch inseam? caught between deciding whether to get a medium or large chili...gonna run a 50-70mm stem.

    youre a medium, an inch longer leg and in height and you'd cross over into large. Go 60-70mm stem and 740mm+ bars to give your self the right cockpit space.

    You are probably a medium with that inseam. I'm 5'11 with a 33" inseam and ride a large.
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    thats a tough one, you obviously have al ong torso at your height. the longer top tube of the large may suit you better, but the 19" seat tube could possibly restrict your dropper options. i'm 6'even with a 32" inseam on a large running a 50mm stem. that was dusty's recommendation and i'm glad i went that way. in a perfect world for me, the large would have an 18" seat tube or maybe 18.5" max. just a small quibble. you look like a tweener, a demo would be best if you can arrange one
