You sound like a large, but I always tend to lean towards smaller bikes for better maneuverability.

It's a lot easier to adapt to a frame that is too small than one that is too large, especially for the type of riding you are doing.

Ever thought of testing one out to see which one you perfer?

Yeah, don't take our word for it...go test them out and have the shop fit you. We have no idea if you have stumpy legs and a long torso or visa-versa....

shoot a message to mattj. he's roughly your height and is riding a Demo 9 frame.

I'd say go with a medium, you'll have an easier time wipping it around on the trail. you might find that the cockpit is a little cramped when you climb, but honestly if your going to be shuttling 90% of the time that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Medium.. unless u have really long legs.

im 6' even and i love my Medium, i couldnt imagine wanting to go with a Large.

plus the Demo9 climbs really well even with a standard seatpost..(i dont even need a tele-post.)

A 585mm tt with an integrated 40mm stem and a ~66HA Can feel a little tight for a 6'1" person... but that ultimately depends on the rider.

Take a large out for a spin too. With a 605mm tt and a 19" seat tube is not a 'huge' large.

If you try them both and cant decide, its always easier to get a longer heavier duty stem than buy a new frame. Or so I think at least.
