Most people size up on a Demo. You'd probably want a small Tues.

Not anymore, they're now pretty "conservative" when it comes to bike geometries. They're not short either, just not as long as the "old" Demo used to be compared to other DH bikes

As to the question, I would say M without a doubt. It would feel better than a S in my opinion.

Compare both geometries, the Reach and Stack mainly, but keep in mine it's pretty easy to shorten a bike "length" with shorter stems, shorter bars (you probably won't benefit that much from a 800+mm handlebars), spacers bellow the stem, ...

Medium Demo back then was 420 reach. Small YT was 410 and medium was 430. He said the medium Demo was a bit big so I recommended a small YT.

Good point, I didn't check the geometries... I thought the previous Demo would have been shorter than that ...

I’m 5’7” and had a MD Tues Pro, if anything I would have gone to a large. I like longer reaches, but take that for what it’s worth.

You want a medium at least I'm 5'7" and ride a medium tues, probably should have picked up a large.

Same here - I'm 5'6" and I ride M. I should have picked a L.
