    stumpjumper fsr sizing?

    hey all, i'm looking at a 2011 stumpjumper fsr comp, and i'm wondering about sizing; i am about 5'9" 135 pounds inseam 32. i will probably grow a couple more inches (turning 15 this year), so would i be a medium or large size frame? i know, the best way would be to actually try the bike out. i would prefer a larger frame so that i don't outgrow it, but would i have any problems with a large?

    thanks, and happy new year.

    Your best bet would probably be a large so that you don't grow out of the frame. The only problem I could forsee having with a large is the standover height, I would try and find a large to "stand over" before purchasing one. Your reach might be a little streched out as well but that can be fixed with a shorter stem.

    Some of us are 6'1" and still ride a medium....so the word "outgrow" a frame is kinda ridiculous....unless you grow 6" or something crazy
    The odds of you owning the frame for that long are slim anyway...I take it you have never owned a true MTB before.
    You need to be careful on stem length also....you can't go to short.
