    Help! - Size advice needed for 5 spot

    Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a DW 5 Spot very soon but i'm torn between sizes. I'm 5ft 10.5" (no shoes) and seem to be smack bang in the middle according to the Turner website. Can anyone offer some advice (quickly) as my LBS has a Medium and Large in stock at a very attractive price and i don't want to miss out!

    Demoing a Large next weekend but could do with a little advice before then.

    Cheers guys!

    I'd recommend the large. Check this thread out about the possible effects of having a frame that's too small. However, if you prefer a more upright riding position and a medium can be ridden. You probably won't be able to put the same power down on the climbs, but will feel more comfortable on the descents. What you don't want is to get a medium and decide that you need a longer stem to feel sufficiently stretched out on the climbs.

    If you have a longer torso and shorter legs, go Large. Shorter torso and longer legs, Medium.

    Large

    I'm 5'6" and the medium fit me perfectly, fit just like my 03 Spot with more standover.
