    New question here. New AS-Rsl, what size/color?

    I'm considering a new AS-Rsl, but I'm not sure what size I need or what color I want. The Yeti website says someone my height (6'0") is right in-between a M and a L frame, if you were me which would you choose and why?

    Also, the only color I've ever seen on a Yeti is the turquoise - and I think it's badass, but if I want a M only Red and Black are currently available...how do these colors look in person? Please post pics if possible.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Please vote in the poll and post regarding frame size - thx.

    Get a large. I am 6' and have ridden the medium and large ASR 575 and the large felt much better. You can always shorten the stem if needed. Best to ride both if possible though. It's kind of a personal preference too.

    Turquoise

    The turquoise is so anti-bike color I love it. It also happens to be some excellent paint as mine has stood up to 1+ year if racing and still looks really fresh. I've seen black and it looks great too and the red is nice in photos, but they are normal bike colors. The Yeti is not a normal bike.

    I'm 6'4" and my L is just big enough - I use a 130mm stem. My guess is that on the L at 6'0" you would be at a 80mm stem.

    Turquiose. It's sooooo Yeti. Black and red are just too common of colors.

    I'm 6ft as well. I was shown to be either M or L in the 575, but the Large really felt better to me. I did drop to a 90mm stem, but that was the only change I made. Feels like home now.

    I'm 6ft right on the money. I went with large and a 120mm stem. Yes, I'm weird. I need the 120 mm stem, and I have to scoot my saddle completely forward.

    I think I would be pushing the limit on saddle height with a medium.

    I'm just a hair under 6' (5' 11.5") and I ride a large 575. I liked it at first, but after riding it for a year I decided that I was too stretched out. I've replaced the stock 100mm stem with a 90, swapped a couple spacers to bring the bars up, and it feels much better. I've been kicking around the idea of getting a 80mm and seeing how that feels, but I don't want to get too cramped. Occasionally I think that maybe a M would have been a better fit, but then I remember that the head tube is .75" shorter, so to get my bars up to the height I like, I'd need to get some seriously high riser bars.

    I say that you should get the L turquoise.

    Just curious, why do you feel you need a 120mm stem?
