I'll try to keep this simple. . .
I'm 5'-8" with a 30" inseam.
I like climbing as much as descending, and many of my local trails are very steep, rocky climbs, so I want to be sure I get the right fit for me.
My current ride is a 2007 KHC XC Team full suspension w/ 4" in front and rear, with a Effective TT of 23" and a 90mm stem. Geometry is: HA: 70; SA: 73. I really love how this climb climbs (with upgrade Fox RP23 rear shock), but I'm looking for a bike that's stiffer in the BB, and a bit more "planted" feeling on the DH.
Question: Would the 2009 Matic in size medium be a good fit (with a 75-80 mm stem), or should I go with a 2010 Durance in a size small?
Normally I would try to get a test ride to make this determination but since the nearest Maverick dealer is over 200 miles away that's not very pratical.
Thanks in advance for any advise!
