You can demo at ABS in Santa Cruz. They are T's N CA distributor. Good guys. Check your PM.

Try to get a demo ride at ABS. I'm the same height as you except I have a 32.5" inseam. A medium fits me, but I have over 9.5" of seatpost exposed (there's a joke there somewhere) which is a lot. With your inseam, the medium should be perfect.

Don't worry about the standover. It'll be fine.

I concur on Another Bike Shop in Santa Cruz. You can try one out for a day on the trails (Wilder and other trails are very close) for a reasonable fee. My brother-in-law if your size and a medium was "spot" on for him.

Sun Bikes in Milpitas also carries Turner. They just had a sale price, which they may or may not honor still. It's worth a try at least. I'm looking to buy a 5 Spot too. Maybe we could do a group buy or something. Check your PMs.
