    Your riding not pants inseam contributes to sizing.
    If you have long legs for your height you'll have a shorter torso and can go medium because you don't need as much cockpit space(reach). Reverse short legs long torso goes with a large.
    Reach is the number in the geo chart you can compare if you test ride bikes some day.

    I'd rent a bike from a local shop to get some comparable geo seat time.
    This is getting close to a dh bike at 34 lbs.
