Out of curiosity Calo, how tall are you? I'm a little over 6'3" and found the XL really tall when I tested one in Melbourne (and also hated that gap between the top and down tubes where they meet at the head tube 😂) so ended up with a Large which i find quite good.

I'm between 6'3" and 6'4" and the XL is perfect for me, I think I got one of the last XL's in the country, I've been told they're not importing any more to Oz due to a new model arriving in the second half of this year. TBH I didn't even notice the gap compared to the smaller frames but doesn't worry me. I like having lots of room to move about on the XL and it's still very maneuverable going uphill and super stable on the downhill sections. I've put different bars, grips, dropper post and seat on it now but I'm very happy with the handling so can't see the point of faffing around with a 29" front wheel or different tyres. Cheers

Hi NJN, it all depends on your body and how you like your bikes set up. I don't have enough experience, or have ridden enough different bikes to know for sure but I do know I'm old and my back doesn't like being bent over too much :) so I don't mind the tall HT and also have 35mm rise Renthal carbon bars on mine. Seems comfortable to me...
