    Don't get it. The top tube length is most likely too short. Wait and either get a medium or large.

    The Small is too small. The Medium is probably long enough for you.

    Like the others said... wait and get the one that fits you (medium). They should be able to have one ordered and in w/in a week.

    Thanks guy for your advice....
    It seems that I should go for Titus Motolite instead as my LBS promise to have this M size frame within 4 weeks time. I do not know when they will bring in new 575 stock anyway.

    I may change my nickname then...sigh..

    575 too small

    Hi,

    Yes a small is way too small for you.

    Where are you based?

    If your LBS cannot help you with a 575, I can supply one and ship it to you.

    I have no problems getting stock from the UK importer - I am a Yeti dealer.

    Chaser.

    Why would anyone go Nomadic when...

    "Compared to the Santa Cruz Nomad, the Yeti has only 10% less travel, but is almost 2 pounds lighter, and costs $560 less!" - from Adrenaline bikes

    We already know it performs at least as well, too.

    never thought of getting Nomad...
    i may consider blur xc as there is one unit ( M size) stock ready for me to grab...
    anyway I have to pay additional $$$$...
    but Nomad is totally out from my list though I like it very much...

    I really hated the ML when I test rode it. Maybe it wasn't setup correctly or something but I really couldn't find much I liked about that bike. If nothing else sways you away from it, then let it be the absolutely horrible paint job. Just think hard and the paint falls off. My old 2002 Rockhopper FSR has dents the size of dimes in it but the paint is still there. Titus seriously needs to change their painting technique.

    There is a medium 575 frame for sale on the MTBR for sale forum right now for $800.
