Hi,
I am currently riding a Large Intense Socom, I'm pretty happy enough with the bike (I have a headset angle reducer installed).
I am going for the v10 mainly because its vpp and I am cramped a bit on the socom the v10 has a longer TT. Im 6'5" ~ 6'6" foot tall.

I was wondering if anyone got an XL v10 yet? what was your previous bike and does it feel bigger? more comfortabe....
just wondering about general comments really.

I havn't ridden the actual XL v10s yet, but I have ridden similarly sized bikes.

the new speshy Demo 8's are very close cockpit-wise to the XL V10. It felt very comfy to me at 6'6" tall and lanky (33" inseam, so lots of torso). I usually ride a large M6 and the cockpit was MUCH roomier (in a good way for me) on the demo.

If you really want to get a feel for the sizing, try and find a demo. it'll be a lot snappier than the V10 (much shorter stays, less travel, more progressive travel), but it'll give you a good size comparison.

fwiw, I'm planning on getting an XL when the funds become available. I'm super stoked about it, actually :thumbsup:

I have an xl v10 carbon. I am 6'25 and it fits me perfect. Rode an m6 before in large - it was toooo small for me. go with the xl - they aren't too big tho
