    Instinct vs YT Jeffsy

    Has anyone ridden both?

    I asked over in the YT forum, and crickets so far.
    https://forums.mtbr.com/yt/has-anyon...t-1101003.html

    The main geometry difference is the Instinct has a longer wheelbase front center. Does anyone find the Instinct too long? I think I might like longer front center for security things get steep, but it's 30mm longer than the Jeffsy (L) and waaay longer than my current bike. I wonder if it's too much?

    I'm also curious if anyone knows how the rear suspension designs compare.

    I've got a size large instinct and I'm 180cm. It doesn't feel long at all.

    Iím looking at doing a frame up build on a new Instinct and l am also 180cm but my inseam is 11.7cm. Do you think the Large is best? I just think the medium is too short in the cockpit on the medium but afraid the large top tube may be too high. I need to find a large to try soon.

    Iím 178cm and I ride a large, the reach feels good. My seat post is nearly fully inserted so its worth checking that.
