I went for a medium because I wanted to be able to use it for a bit of dirt jumping/downhill stuff (it was also the size they had on sale and I got 500 off a $1700 bike ).

It seems to be fine so far, possibly partly because I stand alot. I think with my next bike though I'm going to get one with an inch or two more in the top tube, so I can fit a shorter stem and have the bike feel just slightly longer.

I think it depends what you want to use it for. If your going cross country riding then the standover doesn't matter as much and being cramped over a long ride wouldn't be good, whereas if your going to be chucking your leg over off a dirtjump, I'd defiantly go for the medium if your having problems with clearence on the large.
