    If you have a large Motolite, you will want a large El Guapo. The standover is 1/2 inch more on the EG, and the top tube is .4 inch shorter.

    There are no secrets ever since the Patriot Act was signed into law.

    That you ride a Vassago 29er and Motolite is common knowledge. I figured a large ML for someone six feet tall.

    I'm 5'11'' and very happy on my Large.....just so you're aware the El Guapo's cockpit will be a bit snugger BY DESIGN to allow for better control while descending, hitting drops, and jumping.........a lot of guys jump on AM/FR bikes and complain about the geo.......they quit complaining when the trail gets hairy Just thought I'd throw that out there, enjoy the bike!!!
    I like bikes.

    5'11" - Large...

    I'm 5'11" and have had a large EG since June '07. I use a 75mm stem and it's perfect for me.

    Your torso/leg proportions my be different, but at 6', I would not suggest a med for you - unless you like a longer stem.
