    Firebird sizing

    So I'm looking to get a FB but not sure on the size. I'm 5 11 so theoretically I could ride a medium or large. So was curious what size other FB owners purchased? Thanks.

    I'm 5'11 and went with a Lg and a 50mm stem. Fits me fine.

    If it helps any I am about 5' 9" with a 30" inseam and ride a medium. I also ride my wife's small from time to time and find that it is more fun to throw around. The medium works fine as an AM bike for me. I just depends on what your riding style is and how you intend to use the bike a majority of the time.

    Same here, 5'11" on a large FB w/ a 50mm stem, fits great.

    It's about 31 or 32". My last bike was a 23"TT and felt a bit cramped, the FB is 24" and feels good with a 50mm stem. I could not go any longer or I'd be too stretched out. I use this bike for everything from XC to DH stuff.

    I sat on a med today and it felt just a little small. It didn't feel too bad sitting down but the bike felt cramped when standing. I think the 24" TT will fit better

    I'm 5' 10" with a 32" (pant) inseam. I ride a medium and run a 70mm stem on the FB for most of my riding, then and swap in a 55mm for strictly DH stuff.
