hey guys,im planning to get an '05 santa cruz bullit with a dhx 5 but im not sure which size to get. i ride urban,do drops from 2-7 ft high,jumps ,trails and i'll be racing with it too. in the SCB website it says i can go with a small or a medium. im 5"6.5 tall and i weigh 130lbs..what do you guys think? my fork is a 66rc 170mm. i tried riding a small and a medium frame and was ok with both! the small had a 888 set in 6" and the medium with a super t,7"..the small has a better standover though..need some answers fast ..

Whatever you liked better. I would say the medium might be better so you can grow into it.

Depends on how old you are bro. If your done growing I would get the small. Your used to hucking around and doing urban assault you will have more control over a smaller bike. Plus you will feel comfortable with it since your used to riding smaller bikes. Having a big bike does give you a sense of confidence when your decending, but if you have the 66rc on the front you should be alright. Plus you can throw some tight S&^% while you fly down the hill.

get a medium, i got a small size right now.i am about 5'5 and finding it is a bit too small now. and you will probably grow into it you find it a bit big.
