    Any 5'10" riders on a large Flux 27.5?

    Between sizes and can't decide which way to go.

    Prefer to keep the saddle over the pedals and not offset too much. Mostly XC singletrack with a bit of fun tech stuff here and there.

    GF is 5'9 and on a medium. I think you'd probably make a large depending on whether you are all legs or torso?

    I'm 6' and ride a large. You could always adjust with a different size stem. And by sliding the saddle up. Seems like you're right in the middle. I'd rather have a large and adjust then be cramped.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    That was my thought as well.

    Any idea what the bar to widest saddle part measurement would be with saddle centered on a zero offset post and a 90mm stem?

    Looking for about 28.25" for that measurement. BB to top of saddle would be about 27.25"

    Thanks for the replies

    At 5'10", I'm on a Large Burner., if feels perfect. I'm using a 50mm stem, but could easily run a 70mm stem if I was more XC oriented. I do have longer legs and a more compact torso.

    With a medium, I found I was almost hitting my knees on the bars while standing and mashing up steep little hills. With the large frame it isn't and issue.

    I'm 5'10" with long legs. I ride a med 5-Spot and (less often since its my son's) a large 27.5 Flux. The Spot is set up with a longish (90mm?) stem and seat pushed way back, 150 mm Rev DPA fork. I really like it for the rocky, twisty tech trails we have here (San Gabriels). The front will pop up on really steep climbs, even with the fork set at 130 mm.

    The Flux is set up with the stock fork, 50 mm stem, seat towards the middle, and though not as plush, rides and handles remarkably like the Spot. Climbs faster, more planted. Definitely a longer bike, takes a bit more care on really tight switchback corners.

    I'll go large for the next bike. And Rev or Pike for the fork.

    Thanks for all the replies. Large Flux ordered. :-)

    Will be nice to get back on a Turner since getting rid of my 5 Spot a couple of years back.

    Got the new Flux today and the large was definitely the way to go, fits about perfect.

    May even need to see about getting the 70mm stem swapped for an 80mm.

    Hopefully will be getting it dirty on Friday and Sunday ;-)
