    For all the 5'11 Strive Owners

    I recently bought a Medium Strive 8.0 and I'm starting to think it is too small. It just feels like the bars are kinda close but it might just be in my head.

    If you are 5'11 and own a 2019 model strive what size did you go with? I might be making this a bigger deal than it is.

    I'm 5'11" and ride a large CF 8.0. I do think it's on the bigger side of a large, but I'm more than comfortable on it. I've got it set up with a 40mm I-9 stem, 780mm handlebar, and my saddle pushed forwards a bit.

    I haven't ridden a medium so I can't tell you how it feels in comparison though, sorry!

    Got ya. I think we are just stuck being in the middle. I just rotated the handlebars forward a little bit and it felt a lot better. I also pushed my saddle back just a little bit.

    Thanks man. I really think the Medium is fine. I just let it get in my head and it was bothering me.

    I'm 6'1" or 2ish and I got and XL, seems huge compared to my previous bike but I'm really liking it.

    Iím 5í11 (and 33.5Ē inseam) and I think itís spot on for the 2019 CF 6.0 large. I came from a Jeffsy CF One 27 large, the reach is 10mm longer on the Strive, and I like it. Could probably do another 10mm without problem.
