If you're really comfy on your rm, you should measure the top tube and get the one that is the closest. Hard to tell which one is the right size, because RM usually shortens up their top tube.

good luck

FWIW... I'm 5'8" and ride a medium. It took a while to get used to the shorter cockpit (was used to a traditional longer XCish top tube), but after a few hours in the saddle I came to love the geometry. I've got a 100mm stem on mine and it's a bit on the short side, especially when climbing, but it makes handling the bike very easy.

I would think a medium would fit you well, just play with the stem length a bit to find what you like. I'm assuming you don't have the ability to test ride the bike?
