Is the rear hub 135mm or 150mm? Couldn't find it online. Additionally, do any of you use your Slayer SS for regular trail riding? Can you get a full leg extension? I'm 5ft11 and seem between a medium and large.
The hub is 135mm x 10mm through axle. I 'm 6' 2" and get full leg extension on a large and the seat lowers plenty far enough for DH riding.
I would go for a large at your size as they are not particularly long in the top tube.
The bike will work for regular trail rides if your regular rides are of the freeride/north shore/self shuttle variety. I would not use my bike as a dedicated trail bike as it is too long, too slack and too heavy. A good trail bike can be 5 to 10 pounds lighter. But the bike is excellent in its element!
