On large 19 in frames, distance from tip of saddle to bars middle is 56 to 59, that is for 26 and 29 frames so it does vary.

Hello guys

first thank you for all your help. Just curious and I hope last question.:) What is your length from end of the saddle to end of the central stem? My is 560mm, just to know for expample what you get on M with this position that you have as it would be something similar for me.
I'll have to measure tomorrow, I missed your post. Also, are you looking at a current Epic, or an older one?
Here is my XC bike from 2016, also a size medium. The new Epic is definitely different from the older model, but since people are posting theirs I figured I would contribute.

Thank you. I went to a store and the guy who is doing fitting for specalized put me on large and fit the bike.
I think for me large is better also guy who is doing fitting said same thing. On medium length to end of the stem would be 52 which is too short for me.

My setup measured from the nose of the saddle diagonally to the center of the handlebar is approximately 57cm, so I'm not sure why you're only getting 52? :noidea:

Tonytourist to the end of the stem, not diagonlay.

I also tried M scott spark which was perfect. With 7cm stem it had 55 this length. Tried also canyon lux l and this was also 55.


How you get 57cm i do not know:) but i was not able to get even 53cm

I meant that if you grab a tape measure and measure from the center of the stem and pull it to the saddle nose in a straight line, my measurement was 57cm. If you don't run a lot of setback and use a short stem I can see where it would be an issue.
