It wouldn't be extremely cramped. Large would be better, but it's not like a Medium would be extremely tiny.

Alright well i got the option between a 2010 RM Flatline pro (medium) or a 2010 RM Flatline park (large). Both for around the same price. Thoughts?

Isn't the 2010 park the old style frame? And I say give the medium a ride to see how you feel on it, if it's too cramped or not.

Well these are two bikes on buysell that are in other provinces (literally no 3000$> dh bikes for sale where i live) but, since I'm still 15 and I'm probably still going to grow a couple inches, should I just go with the park?

Yes if your going to keep growing, go for the park. No point in having a nicer bike if it doesn't fit.

Kind of an out of the blue question: Would a Medium 2010 RM Flatline pro fit someone who's 5'11?

Thanks,
im 6'1" ive had a medium 08 flatline and a 2012 flatline blackout medium..... the newer design has a shorter cockpit to the first gen but its still not "cramped". I do ride 8" dual crown forks though if that matters? id consider a large but it wouldnt be a must have whatsoever

I'm 6'1 and have had 2 of the new style flatlines, both mediums. They were a touch cramped, but I'm more of a freeride type guy and loved the fit of a medium. It's all preference. I vote you see if you can try any medium (any locals got one you could spin around on?). If you try it and don't like it go large.

yea ive never noticed it being crampybat all, im always impressed with how the bike performs LoL! my 08 medium felt better at high speeds, but it wasnt nearly as good for maneuvering. more of a sled as the newer style is more nimble but handles speed ok too :-P win win imo

Hi,

I'm looking into getting a flatline, (one of the older models) and can't quite figure out what size I need.
I rode a Medium session 88 and it felt really small. I know sizes can vary allot from different manufactures.

Is the older flatline a big medium? or should I go with a large?

I am 5'10

I'd go with a large personally. Medium would be cutting it real close, you'd be safe with getting a large.

I am 5'10'' and I rode a Med, for me it was perfect.
