What would you guys recommend in this situation?
Medium should be about right, depending on how long of legs you have. I'm 6'1" and am using a medium size since the large would mean I'm sitting on the top bar when getting off. But I have had to do some mods like upping the seat post and a new stem for the handlebar to make this comfortable.
