    575 sizing - comparing to current ARC/ FRO

    I'm looking at buying a 575 for my wife; she currently has a medium 2003 Yeti FRO, which I think has the same geometry as the ARC.

    Comparing Yeti's specs on a medium 575 vs medium ARC, it looks like the medium 575 will fit her very similarly. The local dealer doesn't have any mediums in stock, and hasn't for quite awhile, so I haven't been able to find a medium bike for her to try for sizing.

    Anyone here own a medium ARC or FRO, as well as a medium 575? Interested to hear your comparison in sizing "feel."

    just compare the specs and measurements on the website. my 2006 medium 575 has a standover of 29", thats 1" less than my buddies medium rockhopper.

    5'9" - solidly in the middle of Yeti's "recommended" sizing for the medium 575.
