Advice on Co-op bike sizing if in between 2 sizes?

I am currently looking at purchasing the Co-op CTY 2.1. I sit right in-between the medium size and the large size. I am 5'10 and have an inseam right around 29". Since my local store is closed and not processing returns I do not want to order the wrong size bike.  Also, any reviews or knowledge on the bike would be appreciated.

Hey there @Gpainslie!

Thanks for reaching out to us in the Community!

I know this can be a tricky decision to make during this time! My best advice would be to go with the size medium. Height is only one part of the equation when it comes to bike sizing. Using your inseam measurement is important.  The size large has a stand over measurement of 32” which is likely to feel like a stretch. 

I would recommend taking a look at our expert advice article that discusses bike fitting basics before making a final decision. 

I hope this is helpful!
