Stumpjumper FSR comp 29 size
Hello guys, i'm new on this forum and I really would appreciate your help.
I'm going to buy a stumpjumper fsr 29 (actually already ordered).
This will be my first "real bike" and I really want to go into the sport -(mainly trail).
I really struggling to find the right size for me.
I went to my LBS and tested a stumpjumper fsr evo on the parking. it was a Large.
I also tested a Medium epic and felt less comfortable but the seat was not adjusted well.
I'm 5'11 1/2 and 33,6' inseam lenght.
The guy at the shop recommanded me M version but obviously, the specialized bike chart says i should go with the large.
The LBS didn't do a real fitting apart inseam lenght mesurement.
I can still ask for a L instead of the M as the bike has been ordered yesterday.
What do you advice guys?
Many thanks for your help
Re: Stumpjumper FSR comp 29 size
If I were you I would definitely order the large, the medium will be way too cramped for you. I'm 5'8" and ride a medium, and even to me it feels fairly short as far as top tube and reach goes.

Thank you for your input. I have just changed my order for a L !

Large. I'm 5' 10 3/4 32 inseam and rode a large, the medium was too small.
