    Trek Session 9.9 sizing

    Hi All,

    Please could someone give me some advice on the sizing of the Session 9.9. Im looking to purchase a frame but after reading the review in Dirt they commented that the large is to small for anyone above 5' 10" to 6'. I know the Dirt team (steve jones) likes long bikes so im wondering if thats just him saying the sizing is too small.

    Im 5' 9" and normally ride medium bikes but im wondering if I should order a large?

    Thanks

    I'll be renting the Medium in a couple of weeks if you can wait that long for an update. I'm the same height with a long torso.

    Not sure if this is too late, but I threw a leg over a couple of Session 9.9s (medium and large) a couple of weeks back when looking for a rental.

    I am the same size as you, with a longer than normal torso. I would NOT get a Medium and would consider a Large. The top tube on these bikes feel extremely short. The Medium felt the same as a Small Specialized Demo, which is the bike that I ended up renting in the end as it happened to have the suspension set up better for me.
