    Sizing on 5.7 C

    Looking to see what size frame people are riding. I'm 5/10 with a 32 inseam and cant decide on the med and the large I'm kind of in the middle. I'm coming off a Ibis Hd that had a 23.8 toptube with a 90 stem that fit me perfect any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Stack and reach are actually more important than TT length. Also factor in how wide your bars are gonna be (e.g. Wider = shorter stem). Considering you are on an HD with a 90 mm stem, sounds like you have a long torso, so you probably should go large since the stack and reach on the 5.7c is close to the lg HD. That all said, you really should try out both the med and lg if all possible.

    I'm 5'11" and went large on my 5.7c. Medium was way small. I prefer a 60mm stem on my bikes. FYi I have a Large HD too.
