    EMD sizing (M vs L)

    I'm 5'10.5", and run my saddle at 28.75" (ctr to top of saddle, along seat tube/post). I took a quick spin on a friend's 2011 large EMD, and it felt a little low/long. He's running a 100mm x 7* stem flipped with a flat bar (fork is a Reba SL).

    What length stems do folks run on their medium EMDs? A 90mm-100mm stem on a medium might be the ticket for me, but I don't want to be too far over the front end.

    Thanks.

    I'm around the same height and run a 90mm stem on all my medium Niners.

    5'9 here and run a 70mm stem on my med emd. I tried both a 90 and 80mm stem but they were just too sluggish for my tastes.

    Talked to the wizards at Niner (Interbike), and when I told them I'd be running bars with lots o' sweep, they said large. Checking the couch cushions for change...

    I'd be a little skeptical of a large without riding a medium first. Even though you've already ridden a large the sweep on the bars may not be enough to make you comfortable in the saddle. You may end up with a much shorter stem than you are used to. I'd try a medium frame with a 80-90mm stem and maybe even a lean back seat post. Food for thought...

    I've pretty much scratched the EMD off my list (long story).

    Did you scratch Niner all together or just the EMD?

    Pretty much Niners in general. Looking at some other brands.
