    Jeffsy sizing question

    I am planning on adding a Jeffsy to my stable. My other FS bike is a SC Nomad 3, size medium. I am 5'9" (176 cm) with narrowish shoulders and longish arms. The Nomad medium feels fine to me, never cramped. When I compare sizing it looks like the medium Jeffsy is very comparable to the medium Nomad in sizing. But YT suggests I go for a large. I have never owned a 29er, rather went from 26 to 27.5. So, I'm thinking that despite what YT says, the large would feel a bit unwieldly due to the larger size than what I am used to and the 29 wheels. Am wondering if anyone has an advice from a similar situation. I know that volumes have been written on this site about bike sizing which is in large part personal preference, so I do post with some trepidation. Thanks for your responses.

    check again-for 178cm and above they suggest Large. Don't get confused with their imperial sizing, stick to the metric one. your 176 fits a medium

    Great catch - they list:
    M 167-177 5'5"-5'8"
    L 178-188 5'8"-6'1"

    But 177 cm is 69.7" (5'9.7"), and 178 is 70.1" (5'10.1")
    I'm at the border of the sizes but I like how my medium Nomad feels so I'll go for a medium Jeffsy.
