    Sizing help sight killer b

    Hey guys! I am looking to get a Sight Killer B frame and need some help on what size to get. I'm 5'10" and curious what people of similar height are riding. Any input is appreciated.

    I'm 6'0" with a 33.5" inseam and ride a size large sight killer b - I found the cockpit a bit cramped with the stock 60mm stem so I played around with a couple of different lengths and settled on 80mm...bike fits VERY well

    I'm around 5'10" with a 33" inseam (measured from the floor or 32" if measured to my ankle bone) and I've bought a large.

    When I had a demo ride I noticed that Norco have specced a shortish stem and wide bars. When I first sat on the bike it felt too cramped but after riding a few trails I thought the shorter cockpit gave me a bit more room to manoeuvre on the bike.

    I'm 5'9" 30 inch inseam, riding a medium. My friend who is about 5'7" rode my bike with doing nothing but dropping the saddle down a couple of inches.

    Pretty much in the same situation. It kind of sucks at this height (5-9,5-10) as we are always falling in between the medium and the large. Every bike shop that sizes me puts me on a different one lol.

    First world problems I guess.

    I'm nearly 6'0 and ordered a large. At your height, you could go either way and not go wrong. Smaller for shorter wheelbase, tighter handling, more fun descending & jumping .....bigger for more stability, easier ability to get stretched out for better climbing. You'll be running a short 50-60mm stem on the large, and 70-80mm stem on the medium more than likely........Good luck

    I ended up putting a deposit down on a large carbon 7.1. I would rather use a shorter stem if necessary. I will post an update once I get the bike.

    I'm 5'8. I demo'd a large Sight. The large felt good. I bought a medium based on sizing charts and LBS input. The medium is the proper size for me.

    I'm 5'11" with a M. I have a 55mm stem on it and it feels a bit cramped on long distance rides. I really want to swap out for a large. So if anyone has the opposite problem let me know!

    Rusty why not try tossing a longer stem on your medium? I'm 6' and on a large with an 80mm stem, but I've got a long reach in general...

    Hey there. I'm 6"2. I had a Large but sold it for an XL. My reach is a little long for my height (as if I was 6'4") so I was running a 100mm stem. Too much. The new bike hasn't arrived yet, but I think it's going to be perfect for me.

    I'm 5'5" and 29 inseam, from what I saw that this bike is a little bit shorter in cockpit than other bikes.
    My prefer is on low and longer frame, with a shorter stem (say 50mm)
    So should I go for Small (seems slightly short)?? or Medium (seems too large)??

    Just for the record, I am 6'1" and I ordered the XL after always riding Large, apart from absolutely loving this bike it really seems to fit me. 50mm stem was and is the only change I am making. Awesome ride.

    I'm 5'11" with a 33" inseam. Bought a large changed out the 90mm stem with a 70mm and the fit is perfect.

    Not sure on the XL, but on the large, a 90mm stem comes standard. I'd guess 90 or 100mm on the XL. Like Logan H, I'm 5'11.5", and I ride a large and with a 70mm stem it feels dialed.
