Evil Sovereign Advice

Hey guys I'm thinking about buying an Evil Sovereign b/c I found a place where the price is about right. I ride AM..so lots of up, and lots of down. My normal route is also around 20km, and I will be taking it on longer rides up to around 100km. I can't decide if the med or large would be more appropriate.

The med definitely looks a little small (23.03 in/585mm effective TT) compared to the large (23.82 in/605mm). I am leaning towards the large with a 60mm stem. What do you all think? I am of fairly average proportion and between 6'1-6'2.

I've also been thinking about the Ragley Blue pig. I found the Evil at an only slightly higher price, and from what I have read it is a pretty amazing steel hardtail. Is the Evil a much better bike than the Blue Pig? Does it justify the extra half pound of weight? Thanks in advance!

Well no need to answer this thread anymore, unless you wanna say how cool your Sovereign is . I knew after my ride today that a medium would be way too small. Just ordered a large kelly green 2011 Sovereign. I am freaking pumped!! Now I have to wait just a little longer before I can throw myself off some more serious stuff . Self high five DDP style baby!
