    I have an Large 06 BD single and I'm 6ft, I think that the Medium would have being better.
    It has a dhx 5 air and a 66 vf and I love the bike. It peddals really good.

    I have an 07 Triple and swapped the air for a DHX coil, a 66RC2X, Michelin DH16s(2ply), and a new SunRingle A.D.D. wheelset...I'm at 42 pounds. A LITTLE bummed cuz I pride myself on building light bikes, but this thing is ready to battle.
    Also, I assume the 07s and 08s prob weigh a tad more than the 06s.
    And I've only ridden mine ONCE now(been 20 degrees and windy since the day I got it built!) so can't really tell if it's too small or not, but I'm 5'8" or just under with short little legs and long monkey arms(WTF is wrong with me anyway?) and I'm on a small. I say I can't tell yet because I just spent the last two years on two different Specialized bikes that were both obviously too big for me. Great on bomber runs, but I couldn't hang with the techy stuff well. So far, from what I can tell, it feels pretty damn good. The bike feels like it's right there for me. But no big jumps yet and no super fast runs. Hopefully fix that this weekend!

    still not there

    the bike height is general, im 5' 10" and i think i shoul get a medium, but the chart says i shoul get a large. So what do you think. They dont have bike weights on the site, and the faq says that. i want it for the stock component set up because i have heard everything from 36-45lbs for this bike. so.... any help would be much apprictated, thanks.

    Medium. And it depends on what you'll be using it for. If you want it for fast, tight trails, jumping and general mayhem, keep it short and tight. If you are going for long straight fast DH runs and/or XC and climbing, go a little bigger. Longer wheelbase is more stable at high speed and for XC it's nice to have a little room to move around without having the bars buried in your navel. I found i nosedive on drops with a bike with too long of a top tube, can't work the front end.
    At 5'10" I think you'll be OK with either.

    Oh, and I can't imaginegetting these bikes below...mmm..... 36 pounds at the skinniest it should ever go. Air shock and air fork, maybe 34ish, but I wouldn't like it. I'd say 40 is a solid average.
