    Based upon limited info it sounds like a Large Spearfish would work. I am 6 ft (183cm) tall with a 33 inch (83cm) inseam. I have 110mm stem and it fits really well. Good luck.

    You should be fine on a large. I like a tight compact fit. I'm 6' with 32 inseam. I love my medium. I can f;ick it around as well as a 26" bike.

    I'm 6' 3", 34.5" inseam, and I went with the Large SF (20") with 115 mm stem to compensate for my gorilla arms. I could have gone bigger but am glad I didn't. Love the thing as it is....

    another question,

    I'm looking to get a spearfish 1 very soon. I just looked at the size chart and it says a medium would fit me best at 5"10. Does anyone have any good advice on this. I currently ride a Large Stumpy HT and it fits perfect. The Large spearfish says it would fit a 5 10.8" person... Does anyone have any advice on this?

    I rode large Specialized bikes for years. I now ride a medium Spearfish with a 100mm stem and Thomson setback post. At 5'11" with 32 inseam this feels great to me. I can flick it around and love it on all types of trails. I tried the large with 90mm stem and no setback post. It didn't feel as agile from what I could tell. I don't think you can go wrong with either size. Just depends on your style. If you like to stretch out than get a large. Like a compact fit get the medium.
