So I am looking at a 2013 B29 frame. I am 6'0 with an inseam around 34.5", maybe even a little longer. (Pants inseam is 34", fwiw. )
I have always ridden size large from any brand. These days I am usually on an ETT around 24.5" with a 90mm stem. My riding is XC-ish, light trail. Lots of narrow flowing single track with many short ups and downs. Not a lot of drops or big rocks. I do like to hit the occasional jump.
I am looking at the B29 not so much as a monster trail hucking machine but as more of a full suspension version of my Yelli Screamy. I find that the "short and slack" geo works very well for my riding / trails and is a whole lot of fun.
Transition sizing guidelines would put me on a large B29. If I look at reach and stack measurements, this seems close to other recent frames I have had. The only big difference is ETT being around 1" shorter than I am used to.
I think that I could fit a L or XL. My main worry about the XL would be that the longer wheelbase would be too similar to my current FS. I am looking for something more "Yelli-like".
Given my size and riding style, what size would you recommend? No chance that I will be able to demo one. There are no Trans dealers anywhere near me.
