    Ripley v4 sizing

    I'm a bit confused on sizing for this bike.

    I'm about 5'10" tall and have a 32.5" inseam. I've had a few people recommend the Medium frame for my size.

    The Ibis site says Medium stops at 5'9" and the Large starts at 5'8".

    No shops have a Ripley in stock around me, so I'm going to have to order one. Can anyone confirm the Medium would be the best choice here?

    I’m 5.10. 32 inseam and ride a large Ripley OG V2 and a large Ripley LS V2.

    I just built up a medium Ripley V4 for my wife who is 5’6.

    Whilst riding it around to bed in the brakes/shakedown etc I can tell you a medium is too small for someone my/your size. Unless you like riding dual slalom/ bmx.

    Same height/inseam here, been on a large Ripley V4 for 6 months. I pedaled around a medium and a large before I bought mine, medium felt way too small.

    I’m 5’8” with a 30” inseam. I rode around on both, actually a large first, then a medium then the large again to make sure, all while the shop guy was watching. The medium felt cramped confirmed by the shop guy saying I looked cramped on the medium. So I ordered a large. In fact the large I rode had like a 70-80mm stem on it. The large was a personal bike of a worker in the shop who was my height and inseam. Hope this helps.
