    Sizing difference between a medium Niner Jet 9 and large Tallboy?

    I have a medium Jet 9 RDO I like pretty well. I find the internal cable routing to be crap but otherwise a good bike. I am 5'11" and usually ride a large. Anybody more to a large Tallboy?

    Thanks.

    Not exactly the same, but I went from a medium RIP to a medium TB LT. I'm 5'9".

    My guess is that the L TB would be a good fit, but I'd also think the M Jet is a bit small for you, so what do I know?

    I'm 5'10.5" riding a large tallboy with 90mm stem and it's a good fit. I rolled around on a jet9 rdo medium and it felt too tight for me even with a 100mm stem.

    I had a medium Niner RIP 9 (similar to the JET, I'd think) this summer for a few weeks and it was a good fit. I'm 5'11" with a 31" inseam. I have three SC bikes right now- TallboyC, Blur LT, and Superlight- and they're all larges.

    It feels pretty tight with a 100mm stem. I am going to buy a new bike this weekend--maybe if I can get a good deal

    SC bikes tend to run on the small side....get the large.

    Even at 5'11.5-6' my L Tallboy 2 feels a bit on the small side.....I could have easily done an XL.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    I went from a medium Pivot to a Large TB, I am 5'11" and the fit is perfect with a 70mm stem. Get the Large.
