Hey folks, I'm looking in to buying a 08 yeti 575 frame and was wondering if the medium will be a bit too big for me as I'm only 5'7 or will it be ok? . If anyone could help me with this that would be great as I cant find the 08 sizing chart for the frame. cheers Rob

I'm the same height and work on the theory that anything medium is too big for me. But full suss tend quite often all have the same standover but different length toptube. So I suppose it depends what you like in terms of riding position?

Well to be honest I like to have quite a high seat post just so the biuke can be thrown around easlily but also want a bike to do all day rides.

5'8" and riding a medium 2007 575. A small would be too short, but I do like my bikes long.

Ah right cool. How does it feel on tight technical stuff? I am tempted by this frame to be honest but just wanna make double sure it will fit me. Any other yeti rider out there that could help me?
