    Marin Mount Vision XM6/7 help with sizing.

    I am looking for a new full suspension bike and came across the
    Marin Mount Vision XM6/7. Need help with the sizing.
    I am 5'10" with a 30" inseam. Not sure of what size I would need?
    Was thinking either a 17.5 or 19
    Looked at the sizing specs, but get confused with the actual and
    effective sizes.
    17.5 top tube actual 564mm effective 589.2
    19.0 top tube actual 579mm effective 603.2
    Buying online, so test riding is not really an option.
    Any sizing suggestions would be appreciated.
    Any Mount Vision XM6/7 owners input/reviews/suggestions
    would be appreciated.
    Have narrowed down choices to either Marin,Cannondale or Giant.
    Have also asked the same question on those forums to.
    Thanks

    I would say go with the 17.5. I am 5'9" with 30 inseam and I went with the 16"(got it for $1200). It fits a little small, but i threw wide bars and a dropper post on, and it fits how I like it. I would say the 19 might be a bit large for you.

    I would say, that if you have the cash, go for the XM7. you get far better brakes, and suspension, the drivetrain is a little better, and you get a dropper seatpost. It would be worth it in the long run.

    I agree with moefosho, I'm 5'9 and I bought 17'5''. It fits me perfect.
    Also I was between Xm6 & Xm7 and finally I got Xm7. I think for a little over you can get better components.

    I have the same measurements as you (5'10" and 30" inseam) and I purchased the 17.5 XM7. Part of me is curious at how the 19" would fit since I put a 50mm stem on. But I am comfortable on the bike
