A bit small...
These frames are a little small compared to others on the market. I've compared this to a Trek Fuel or a Titus RacerX and it's considerable smaller. I'm 6'0" and usually ride a medium frame by most but can easily be between a large and medium across the board. I'd definitely go for the larger of the two with Intense XC bikes. As for the ride, unbelievable!!! Get it! You'll love it! There are few other cross-country rides that are as responsive and lively while giving you 4" of suspension you hardly notice when dialed.
