Trek Fuel OCLV frame sizing

Hi All,

I plan on upgrading my bike frame to a Trek Fuel 95/98/100 OCLV carbon fiber frame with rear shocks. Can someone tell me what size would fit someone who is 5 ft 7in? Would a Small fit better than a medium frame for those of you who own this particular model?

I have a 17.5" trek carbon fiber 9800 frame which initially fit when I was younger but now is giving me some neck problems probably due lack of flexibilty as the top tube seems to be too long for me and it feels like a stretch to reach the handlebars.

Thanks!

Are there any shops around that will let you ride one in a small and medium? you could decide better that way.

I think you will get this problem with all XC bikes as they put you in a very forward position.
