[DONE] Bronson V3 and 5010 V3 sizing question (169cm / 5'5-5'6 rider)

Dear all,

I have an in-between sizes dilemma with Bronson V3 and 5010 V3

Current bikes I'm riding
Nomad V3 M size 35mm stem
5010 V1 M size 50mm stem

Anyone same height with me in between 5'5-5'6 (168-169cm) riding either bikes. Would like to hear your opinion and cockpit setups.

So far based on my geo to geo research
Nomad V3 M size is closed to Bronson V3 S size. Only N3 has 10mm more on the ETT compare to B3(584mm vs 574mm). Reach is 419mm vs 415mm

5010 V3 vs V1. V3 has 420mm reach vs V1 403mm. ETT V1 has extra 10mm vs V3 (584mm vs 574mm)

Hope someone could share some opinions with me should I got for S or M size on both models.

Thank you

I own a large V2 5010 and a large V2 bronson and went with the same size on my V3 bronson. Fits the same, just a bit longer, which I actually like better. The V2 bikes feel small now when I get on them. I am 5-11.

5'6" on a M HTLT, but demoed a Megatower recently and S felt much more like my M HTLT.

Different bikes but same trends as the ones you're looking at.

My friend at 5'6" has a M bronson v3, and we're currently trying to decide if it's too big or not, he rides it fine, but it looks big when he's on it, I'm 5'9" and it feels perfect for me. I don't think you'd be going wrong with the S if you're on the fence.
What stem length is he running?

When I first got it, I was using a 35mm Deity Cavity stem, but it made the bike way too twitchy in corners, IMO, so I got a 50mm Deity Copperhead and it's perfect. Paired with a pair of Deity CZ38 Special handlebars but I might try something with a little less rise (and a little wider) soon.

Update: I have settled both Bronson and 5010 @ S size. Reach is okay for both even at 31/35mm stem (not a big fan of long bikes).

Height without shoes = 165-168cm.
Hello, which size did you buy? I'm 170cm a prefer a smaller bike for doing some trials riding. i can't decide to Small with 50 stem or Med with 35 stem.
