What size are you riding for your height? I'm 5 10.5 could go with medium or large usually prefer smaller bike but concerned about butt hitting wheel on medium

6'1", riding a large. Its a big bike without a doubt.
Keep in mind you can get +/- 6mm headset cups to adjust. Reach/top tube is just about the only thing that changes between sizes on the DH29.
Medium with +6 headset has a 451 reach
Large with -6 headset has 464

My 2 cents, Id go medium and adjust headsets as necessary.

Personally, no. I like that it has a little bit of squat under braking as it counters the shift in weight and balances a bit with the front. It is subtle in either case. Im a decent rider but far from pro though.

I rode the bike 2 days for he first time last weekend. I did not notice any firming in braking. What was the 2 most noticeable traits for me are how well it carries and picks up speed and how dead silent it is.
