I'm wondering if there are any riders in the 5'8" -5'10" window riding a size small Transition bank. The med has such a long reach.

Thanks

I am 5'9'' with a 32" inseam and the medium was perfect for me, I had no problems with it. I didn't get the small because I heard they had toe overlap issues.

My buddies medium Bank is only slightly longer feeling then my 11 regular STP. It (the medium) doesn't feel as long as Transition says it is. He's 5'8"

My ride buddy rides a Med Bank and it feels long to me.
I'm hoping to replace my size small Vagrant (14" reach) with a Bank. The small Bank has a reach of 14.9" and the med has a reach of 15.9", almost 2" longer than I'm use too.

Of course the stack height on the Bank is much lower than the Vagrant so I'm not sure how that effects the end result.

Way late to the party but I have recently repurposed my wife's small Bank and it's fine! I was worried about toe overlap but it's not a problem even with 175 cranks. I'm 5"10 and run a slammed cockpit with 720mm bars. Hope this helps someone, they are sick bikes. I'm still yet to find a DJ bike that has such a good chain tensioning system.
