    correct size frame for XCL?

    I just ordered an XCL but now I'm worried I might have ordered the wrong size. I'm 5-11 1/2 tall with 32-33 inseam. I measured my top tube wrong on my Truth (actual and not effective) at 23.5 when it's actually 24. When I talked with Jason, I told him 23.5. I also told him I run a 90mm stem and it's actually 100mm/15deg rise. (dumbass I am, had the bike so long I forgot what I had). I ordered a med xcl based off the top tube/size dimensions on the website.

    Will I be ok with that size or do I need a large?
    I'd ask Chumba but they haven't returned my call from yesterday and the bike I believe has probably already shipped, as my card was charged today. I called this morning and still haven't heard back.

    NEVERMIND! Chumba just called me

    Jason confirmed a medium would be fine for me, but maybe new buyers might find this thread useful if we all chimed in how tall we are and what size we ride.
    Can't wait for the new ride! Running a Lyric U-turn on it.

    5'10", 30 inseam and I ride a medium XCL. I got a 100mm stem on there right now, just because that's all I had in my toolbox. I'll be throwing a 90mm with a slight rise on it when I get a chance.

    Im 5'11", about 32 on the inseam, and Im on a large. When I first talked to
    Glenn at bbc, he steered me toward a med, but I decided to go with the
    large since it had a 24" TT, thats what I had on my prev bike, and it fit me
    perfectly. I made the right choice, I can run the seat in the middle position.
    If I had gotten a med, I'd probably have it all the way back on the rails.
    Right now, I have a 120mm stem, geo wise, I have no probs, allows me to
    keep the fork at 125-130mm on all but the longest, steepest ascents.
    I like not having to dial down the fork for tech uphills, Im thinking of trying
    a 100mm, though, might feel better on hairball descents
