    Calling all 5',10"-5',11" Stump Jumper riders.

    What size Stumpy do you ride?
    Medium or Large?

    Im barely 5'10" , 32" inseam. My 06 S-works Stumpjumper is a medium. Im using a set-back seatpost and a 120mm stem w/ a non-riser bar. It fits me Perfectly! I had a large but it was too big,partially due to the longer headtube and obviously the toptube.

    A Large bike always seem to fit me better but I haven't ever had a chance to climb with one. I always hear that it could hamper your climbing ability. A shorter stem and a low rise bar seems like it would take care of the climbing issue.
    The large seems to put less stress on my neck.

    Jut8, What size stem and bar are you running?

    I think Specialized are good with a range of heights on the different size frames, you would be either a medium or a large at that height.

    I am 6'1 and have always gone for a large or about a 19" frame in old hardtail money.

    I prefer to run a stubby stem, 50 mm on my 06 Large SJ and going to go with 70mm on my new 08 SJ. I wouldn't be put off either way without also considering this. If a medium needed you to have too much seatpost but felt stretched then a shorter stem on the bigger frame might be a lot better.

    If I was your build, I'd probably go for a medium.

    Just over 5' 11 and 32" inseam, I went with a large 07 Stumpy. Stock stem and seatpost which I cut a bit off so I can lower it through technical sections (Shaved about 20grams off the weight as well ), have never had any issues climbing.

    I am running the stock riser bar on my 08 Carbon Pro, and the stock stem i believe is a 100mm. I have only had the bike out a few times, i may want to change the stem, i am not sure yet, but if i do, i will be going shorter, not longer......possibly in the 90mm range.

    Thanks for posting the other post!

    Large seems definitely more versatile considering you can have a smaller seat post with more adjustability,

    Get a large, chop the post, throw on a new raceface short stem.

    08 Stumpy carbon pro in a large. Looks like a massive bike, but is actually not much different to the 07 carbon pro. I'm 5'10 and could ride a medium or a large, but just feel too cramped on the medium most of the time. I have put a 90mm stem on and it fits fine. The front end is quite high on the new bikes I find.

    5'10" 31 in inseam, Large '05 FSR . Adjust the stem , set back post and seat position on the post. My brother is same size, bought a medium Enduro because it was a good deal - when I ride that bike it feels like a kids bike.
    You will be "on" a medium as oppsed to "in" a large.

    5'11", 32" inseam. My old hardtail (Hardrock Pro) was a Med, always felt a little small. My 07 Stumpy Comp is a large, feels perfect.

    Im also a 5'11" 32" inseam rider on a Large SJ ...... I removed the stock stem & went w/ a Thomson 90MM stem & cut the seat post down by 1.5" to get the cockpit to feel just right Merry Christmas to all you guys............Joe

    Im about 5ft 10 an a half! Come from a large epic with short thompson stem now awaiting arrival of 08 Stumpy Carbon Pro on MEDIUM. Tried medium and large many times over, instantly felt at home on the medium, the large felt cumbersome and i felt it was reaching forward too much. I found the moment i set off on the bike i instantly knew what was right and wrong!

    The important thing to post with your height is the inseam. I am 5'9" with a 34 1/2" inseam. Going by height alone it would seem that a medium would fit me but I could never get knee over spindle on less then a large.

    Large 04 Stumpjumper with 90mm riser stem.
    Seat slammed forward with 16 degree tilt.
    410mm uncut Thomson seatpost.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    5-9 1/2" and riding a large 2004 Stump with 90 mm x 10 Thomson (X2) stem and zero setback Thomson (Masterpiece) seatpost with saddle 3/4 backed on rails (more rearward position, in other words). I'm more torso than legs, so I like having a long top tube with good standover frame.

    I'm 5'10.5" with a 32" inseam and ride a large 2006 S-works Stumpjumper FSR.
    The medium felt small and the large felt much better. I'm using a 90mm stem
    with a straight Thomson seatpost rather than the setback seatpost.

    FYI,

    Thanks every one, I went with the large and it feels good. I have lots of room for adjustments now. I still have the 110 MM stem I feel like a shorter stem will set me back too much. The shop I bought the bike from has a 100% fit guarantee. They will change out the stem for free as long as it isn't scratched.
