I'm 5 ft 10inches tall. I have a medium 2008 V10 which feels just a tad small and I like the idea of a slightly larger wheel base and am thinking a size large may be more stable at higher speeds. Im wondering if anyone has any thoughts on large or medium size of the V10 Carbon. I've seen the sizing charts (Im in between the medium and large size on the SC size chart). Inseem is 32 inches. Just curious what size others are getting and their height. SC says their large is slightly smaller than the aluminum large.

Thanks
Rick

I'm 5'9" with a 32" inseam and I just ordered a medium V10. I like the bike to fit just a shade on the small side for the ease of popping it around the trail. But thats what works for me, I feel like I flounder around on large size bikes.

The new large is .5" shorter than the old large so now it's a possibility. It's really preference though.

I ride a XL with 6'25 (190 cm). And it fits me perfect. Tested a large from a friend this is way too small for me! Ride all my bikes in xl - only wanna know what guys are doing if they are 6'5?? XXL does not exist... take a large and you are on a secure side. it's better having a longer wheelbase and not being on a smal rig - that's grose. and you can always shorter your cockpit if you need - shorter stem- push forward the seat...
