    Another Strive sizing help request

    Hi,


    Iím looking to finally buy Strive CF 7.0 after raiding down my hardtail for a long time.
    Canyon website is suggesting size 'S' frame (Iím 5'8" tall, inseam 31") I never have Canyon before, but all my bikes were in size 'M' as suggested by bike shops or manufacturer sizing charts.
    I contacted CS and they said that 'M' frame SHOULD be fine.
    Looks like I'm right on the border between sizes.
    I read everything related to Strive sizing on this forum but look's like everyone is taller than me and have problems with bigger size frames.

    If any of Strive owners could give me some input would be great!


    Thanks.

    I looked on a few of the euro websites and found peeps in my range (6í1Ē) and went with their suggestion. I think canyons are a little more popular over there. One thing that is consistent from a recommendation is if your right between sizes, go with the larger if you like a longer wheel base and more stability. If you go the smaller size it will be more poppy but you may need to look at a slightly longer stem if youíre feeling crowded.
