I am considering a Sortie Black but the shop only has a 17" and the 15.5" available. I am 5' 8 1/2" tall with a 32" inseam. Will the 17" fit?

And, since the bike has to be shipped in that means I cannot ride the bike before buying it. Is this bike really as good as it's reviews? The price is right and everything I read is very positive............................ I spend more time climbing up in Colorado than going down but I like going as fast as I can in both directions.

I am coming from a medium (18.5") 2004 Giant NRS with a 100mm stem. I believe the top bar length on the NRS is 23.2". I did demo a Pivot Mach 5 a few weeks ago and was not that impressed.

Trust me, get the med. I have one and love it. Read my threads on the Sortie. I am 5'10" and 32 inseam. Run a layback post and 70mm stem. Love it, You'll feel to tight and cramped on the small 15.5 " frame
