    Need a little help, please...

    I'm a new member, but not new to the site. Have been frequenting the forums for around 3 years now.

    I'm currently looking to purchase a 2011 Motobecane Fantom Team. Not sure if I want to go with 20 or 30 speed, but would like to try the SRAM XO setup. Now on to what I need help with.

    I've never ridden a Motobecane, nor have I seen one in person. I'm 5'7-5'7.5", have a 31.25-31.75" inseam, and from the pivot point on my shoulder(the little bump) to the center of a my hand while holding a standard ink pen, I measured 25". I'm a little confused on what size I should be getting. Seems like I should go for a medium, but I'm not sure if it might be a LITTLE small or not. If someone can be of any help, I'd greatly appreciate it! Can't wait to give one a try.

    A medium will not be small for someone of your size.

    Make sure you are testing your inseam correctly, that is awfully long inseam for someone your height. I'm 5'10 and have a shorter inseam
