    5 Spot Sizing

    Hello,

    Interested in a Turner 5spot I'm 5ft 6" with 29"inside leg.
    I live in UK no demo's available should I get a small 14.5" or a medium 17"
    All advice appreciated.

    Cheers

    I would recommend a small for you, if you want to test one get in touch with Roundel mtb they are the importers in the UK and they should be able to point you in the right direction,

    P.S you will still need a small
    Stay off the brakes

    Correction

    Hi,

    I made a mistake with my inside leg measurement it's actually 30.5" not 29 still 5ft 6" tall(got somebody to mesure me) will this make a difference to sizing required.
    LBS told me to get a M, had a telephone conversation with Turner USA they said I was between sizes and could go either way S or M.
    What would others recommend.

    Cheers

    Hi
    you're in the enviable position of being able to choose either. If you use the search button you'll find several threads covering your dilema but it really comes down to what type of riding you do. If you intend it as a all day mountain bike then go for medium if you want something to chuck around in tight stuff then go for small. I don't think there is any noticeable difference in stand over between the two sizes so its really a question of TT length. I'm your height and leg length and am blissfully happy with my medium for the former type of riding.
    Hope that helps.
