    Giant Anthem riders / size?

    I'm 6.0. Seems like I'm right the bubble between L and M. Seems like I should ride a Large, but would it be better to go M for better handling?

    go for fit not handling. I'd go large and adjust stem as needed.

    UNless you have really odd proportions, I can't imagine you would be a medium. I am 5'10 and went with the medium and I was right on the edge. Like the poster above said, get a fit, but I would bet you will end up in a large.

    I went the shop yesterday and stood over both a M and a L. With snow all over the place I wasn't able to ride either. My inseem is about 34". Not a lot of clearance on the L, but plenty on the M. It could go either way I'm sure and be fine, but would it make more sense to fit a L with a shorter stem as opposed to M with a longer stem for handling purposes? I wouldn't want to go M and have a yard stick for a seat post, but also don't want to sacrifice agility on a bike that's too big. I'm currently riding a Giant Trance size L and it's perfect. Completely different I know... I'm new the the 29er gig

    Geometry between the Trance and Anthem are not that different in the top tube for same size. I'd say stick to large.

    I'd definitely say large. I'm 5 11 with a 34 inseam and ride a L. The medium felt like it did not have enough tire in front of me.
