    Small Sworks Epic?

    Have a friend riding a Medium Sworks Epic. 90mm stem. He would like to get a new frame and is considering a small frame. He is 5.6. he did get a professional bike fit (after a year of riding the bike) and they shortened his stem to 90mm. The quick math says he would get a 110-120 stem for the small frame.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    I'm 5' 6" and prefer the medium. If he hasn't yet, he should ride a small before getting one.

    How do I measure his arms? He says when he boxes, he has to step up closer than his opponent.

    with a measuring tape, starting at the armpit. I have to say that second sentence probably came pretty close to my favorite of the day, haha.
