Same height as you and I’m happy on an XL.
The L has a shorter reach than my 2015 size L enduro bike. I wanted to DH to feel a bit longer so I went for XL and am glad I did.

Yup... same as everyone has said. I’d say XL.

I’m 6ft and I have a large. It’s a bit short. I love it, but could totally use an XL

I am 5.9 (or 1,80m) and just got myself a Large.

Used to ride M but it was way to small for me, my upper body was way to far in the front.
Haven't ridden my Large bike yet, but even standing on the bike feels way better - also Specialized recommend Large to me.

As you are a little taller, I'd say that XL makes sense.
Thanks

Think I'm going to go with a large as I've been looking at geometry specs and comparing them with my last bike trek session 9.9 and theirs only 20mm difference in the reach between a L and Xl demo.
But thanks all the help

yeah go with what your used to. I like the shorter bike. Makes it feel more poppy and playful.

I feel like frame sizing on the Demo is such a hard thing to nail. Go try and stand over a couple different sizes if you can, but I think that the sizing on the Demo is smaller compared to other frames of the same size. I am 5 foot 8 inches and I am riding a L.

Also if your in-between sizing like I am - things such as bar rise, spacers between headset and frame, length of headset reach can really dial in your cockpit and make a L bike fit M or a M bike fit L.

Still undersided on the size I've tried all the local retailers to me and no one has any demo's for to check size.
Think I'm going to go with everyone's advise and go with a XL contrary to my last comment

hey guys! what is this? every bike shop cannot explain to me. everyone say's it is to protect the rear deraillur.

Not quite as clean as the others on here. But happy with how it turned out for my first time. I’ll probably pull it all off and re do it at the end of the season. Also, for anyone thinking about doing this, it may rip your paint. It pulled off a good chunk of my red paint after I heat gunned it on and decided to pull off. Pretty pissed about it... just gotta keep it wrapped now. Lol.
