I'm 5' 10" and I don't know my inseam but I want to say 32 just cause thats what it says on my levis. The HP I just purchased yesterday was a small and fits me quite nicely. On every other bike I test rode I was a medium or even between medium and large.

I think small would be the right size for you.

I am still searching for a trail bike frame and have narrowed it down to Hollowpoint as possible choice.

Sizing question....

I am 5'11" with a short 31" inseam. Damn these short legs and long torso.

What is your height and frame size?
I'm 6'1" with a 33.5" inseam. I ride a medium, but with a good amount of seatpost showing and a healthy stack of spacers under my high-rise stem. I could easily fit a large but prefer the TT length of the medium.

Yikes, all these people not much bigger than me on mediums got me scared I screwed up so I went back through the whole measuring process.

I found out I am 5' 9" not 5' 10" as I said in my post. Somehow I got shorter in the last 10 years... sigh.

I went throught the wrench science fitting guidelines and they recommended a 17" (bb to seat collar) frame.

The Small Hollowpoint is exactly 17" BB to seat collar by my measurement... whew.

Also my inseam is 32" as I guessed.

Anyway since you are 2" taller than me and in light of all the other posts from people of similar height it looks like maybe you are a medium rather than a small. Still it would be optimal if you could take a short ride on each size to find out for certain which is best.
