    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

    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.

    Most likely you should be on a Large. To be certain, ride the medium and make sure the seat post is at optimum height for climbing. Once set, take out the seatpost and see how far you are from the maximum extension point. If you are very close, the medium is too small for you.
