    covert 3 sizing

    I am interested in building up a trail bike and the Covert is on my short list. I was perfectly a small frame on the covert 2 ( rode a friends bike) but I am not so sure on version three. I am 5'7" with a 28.5 inseam. This bike will be used for both trail riding and enduro dh. Am I a medium? Does anyone have standover on the new Covert? Thanks!

    He already said he was happy on the small. Since the geo changes are pretty small on the new Covert I would stick with what already is proven. just my 2 cents ;-) Im 5'11 and feel the medium is almost too long for me, so its like shoes, not all shoes of the same size fit the same.

    i know this may sound stupid, but I'm standing at 5.74" or 1.75m, on paper, its pointing to medium. so will the small be a better optioin ?

    5'7 to 6'1 is whats advertised, thats a HUGE range. Look at what you currently ride and compare the geo to the new covert...if your already happy and the geo is very similar then your good, get the same size. Your def in between, high on the small and low end on the medium.

    i use to come off a M size nomad, and i was able to stretch all the way back ( shifting my butt to align it along the rear hub during decent) , BUT it was with great difficulty. my inseam its about 76-78 cm, hoping to get a good fit on the bike.
