    2014 Norco Fluid 9.2 medium 29er - afraid it's going to be too big for a 5'6 rider

    Hi guys,

    i just bought a brand new 2014 Norco Fluid 9.2 from the factory. It's still on the way to my house so it will take a few weeks or so to arrive. This is going to be my first full suspension bike. I'm currently riding a size small 29er GT karakoram elite HT which fits me perfectly.

    I know i should have gone for a size small but the only really good deal they had was on a medium. I figured since i'm right smack in the middle of SMALL and MEDIUM for my height i would go for it.

    However after reading some info about standover height, i just found out that the fluid 9.2 med will have a standover height of 795mm. Which is think is a lot higher than the SOH of my HT bike now (734mm SOH).

    Also, will i need a shorter stem since its going to be a larger frame compared to my small 29er?

    Am i pretty much screwed?
