    Sultan -- lg or med?

    I'm 6' tall, 165 lbs with a 32" inseam. For those in the same range, do you ride large or med?

    size?

    for sure a large, if you're going 2011, the top tube is 23.6
    can't imagine being 6ft tall and riding a 23 inch TT...
    you should be fine on the large with a 90 or 100mm stem...
    I'm 6' 1/2" with a 34 inch inseam and will be riding a XL soon.. with a 90mm stem
    and by the way I have a brand new large ano red Sultan in the classifieds

    Just looking at the numbers looks like a large. Never owned or ridden a Sultan though, unfortunately.

    Large all the way, don't even think about Medium. I'm 5'11" and ride MY2011 Large Sultan. Besides of reach problems (top tube) you may face some issues with seat tube length (long seat post may cause additional stress on TT/ST connection.

    Large. Turner tend to be on the smaller side scale wise. I'm 5' 11" and my medium 5 spot is so small I leave it to my GF (5' 6") ride.

    Large

    I'm 5'10" ~31.5" inseam and very comfortably on a Large running with a 90mm stem.

    Many thanks to all. Will ride a demo a large this weekend. I've been going debating on the Pivot 429, Niner RIP or the Sultan. I haven't ridden a Turner before and am looking forward to it!

    another vote for large
    6ft with 33-in inseam and 90mm stem on a large and loving it
    I ride an '09 (that year had a slightly longer TT )
    I think I would prefer the 23.6 TT of the current model year large

    Large or XL

    On a 2008 L Sultan with and trying to decide on a L or XL 2012. Effective Top Tube is the same on the 2012 XL and the 2008 L. I am 6 foot about 175 lbs. More XC type rider than DH.
