I have finally decided to sell my beloved 2005 Turner 5 Spot and replace it with a DW link Sultan. I am still keeping my 6 Pack.

Now, I am going to need some advise / help. I am 5'8" with 32" inseam and ride a large and loaded Spot and feel great, althought I was told to stay with a medium. I prefer the larger cockpit.

Based on my Salsa El Mariachi's size which is a medium and it fits perfect except the fact that there is no space between the top tube and my private parts, so I am thinking if a medium Sultan will be the right size.

Meanwhile, I need to find out where to get the best price on the Sultan and meanwhile, looking to find a buyer for the Spot.

I will post it in the classified a few days once it is all ready, and meanwhile, if you happen to have a super clean Sultan and want to do a trade or sell it, please PM me.

Can't wait to get my legs over a fully custom built Sultan.

I would say medium for sure, large would be too big for you IMO.

I'm 5'7" on a medium DW Sultan, but I rode a small 05 pack and a medium 08 Spot.

I'm 5' 8" too with 30" inseam and rides medium Sultan. When I demo a Sultan, DT hooked me up on a medium Sultan and it was a perfect spec.

Im the same height and inseam as you are, I ride a medium and its perfect fit for me..
the longest toptube that I could go is 23.5" with a shorter 90mm stem, anything over is too long already...

The medium Sultan with 23.25" is just about right for you:thumbsup:
