    Stumpy FSR EVO 29er size for 6'?

    Would like to hear from anyone in the 6' tall range that's riding a MED. Stumpy FSR EVO 29er. Why did you get it over the Lg.,what stem length are you using and do you have any regrets? Thanks.

    I think for 6 footer Med is 1 size too short. I am 5'11" w/32in inseam and I tried Med, it felt a little snug. My stem is Syntace F109 100mm and Easton EC 70 680mm Carbon Flat Bar.
    I have '13 Epic Expert and Lg feels perfect.

    I'm 5'11" on a stump fsr 29er size large. 40mm stem with 700mm bars. Kinda curious myself what a medium with a 60mm-70mm stem and 750-ish mm bars would fit like. The shorter wheelbase on the medium would suit my local trails well.

    I'm 5'7 with 30" inseam and I have a medium. Most of the guys I ride with are in the 6-6"2 range and they look really big on it when they beg to ride it. Go with a large.
    Its a great bike.

    I'm about 5'11" and tried a stumpy fsr evo "M" and "L". If it was that bike, not intended for as much downhill as my enduro, I might have gone with the L, as I was kind of leaning towards, but I'm always "in between". If I was any taller, no question, I'd go with the L.

    I'm 6'1" on a medium. No regrets. I've short legs and a long torso and grew up on bmx...I like a smaller bike. 50 mm stem.

    So just curious tshred, how high is your seat post for climbing? Are you close to the max line? Medium is way too small and would feel like riding a kids bike if I was to ride one.

    I'm 5'10" and i had to put a 75mm stem on my medium to get the right size. I large with a 50-60mm stem fits great too.

    My 6ft riding buddy is on a larger SJ Evo and my two 6'2" riding buddies are on XL Enduros.

    im 5'11 plus change, not quite 6. I ride a medium and i love it for rocky technical stuff, though sometimes I do think a large would be more stable and efficient for climbing.
    oh i put in 740mm carbon bars and a 50mm stem. If i could pick again, i would probably go for the large, but mostly because it also comes with 180mm rear rotors i think.
