    Spearfish sizing

    Currently ride a 2014 HT and looking at a Spearfish for racing. I'm 5'10" and medium HT is spot on but the medium SF is shorter. So at my height are you guys riding medium or large SFs? No chance of a demo. Also am considering the carbon frame as well as alu.

    Not exactly apples to apples, but I am 6'3", test rode a L and XL Spearfish Aluminum and Carbon and as per usual felt better on the Carbon XL so that is what I bought and do not regret it. I did put a 10mm shorter stem on it along with some slightly wider bars. At the same time I was also able to ride the L HT and while it felt slightly larger than the L SF, I still wanted the extra room of the XL.

    I guess what I am saying is in my experience they seem to run fairly true to size between models (and between other brands Trek, Specialized, Pivot, Scott, etc. I need XL's) so if you like your medium HT you'll probably like the medium SF. I guess you need to decide if you'd rather to run a slightly longer stem or a slightly shorter if the bike doesn't feel quite right.

    I ride a large HT and large El Mar... both fit great with slightly different cockpit setups.
