Enduro SL sizing?


First of all, I want to thank you for your site. It has been an excellent source of information for me and my co-riders.

I know you are riding the enduro sl and I’m having trouble with size. I’m 5’11” with a 31″ inseam and I have heard that I need a large for one bike shop and a medium from another. I’ll be riding all the front range stuff and usually take 3 trips or so a year to Keystone. I’ve ridden them both around and the large seems a bit big but I sit pretty upright on the medium. I’m really confused about size and it seems that I’m right between the two sizes. Since I know you ride the Endo SL and you live in CO I thought you might be able to help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, is your site the only place to buy your Mastering Mtn Biking Skills book?

Thanks for your help.

Hey Matt,

Here’s the word from Brandon Sloan Himself, the product manager for the Enduro SL:

Hey Lee!

W/o seeing this guy below, I would say run a L frame and put a shorter stem on it. It seems like his legs are relatively short so maybe a longer TT would be good. Anyway, shorter stems are always better!
