2010 Slayer SS 427 questions

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!
