It depends on your inseam/torso ratio.
I'm 5'10" too, but 34" inseam and took the 18.5"

If you have short legs, a M will be better with a longer stem for a more racy position.
A L for a more relaxed position.

Long legs a L with a shorter stem.

Normal legs :) as both will work, then maybe a M will be more lively.

Hmm hmm

I will measure my inseam later on..

But i think L / 18,5''  would be a bit better with shorter stem, lets say 60mm -17 degree


The weight im aiming at is around 7,7kg  8)

Thanks for helping !

Definitely doable, knowing it is about $1,000€ of budget per Kg you want to shave.
Yeah go for it !

Each time I pick my ~8Kg bike, it is a small pleasure rush, like having a great tool in hand.
Expect your friends to secretly hate you :D

Haha

I bet that is true !
I didnt fully understand your statement about price per weight shaved though hehe

My inseam is as well 34'' or 86,5cm.. so 18,5'' will be perfect

I calculated that the budget I will spend will be less then 2000€ (for a 7,7kg XC rocket i think that is cheap)
To be fair, some components have been and will be bought used, or auctions.


Some of the components have been bought:

Seatpost: china 27.2x400mm - 137g (will probably be cut down and tuned later on)
Brakes: Shimano XTR m987 brakes - 400g with 2Ti / 2 Alu bolts
Rotors: china Ashima copy 160/160 - 151g with 12Ti bolts
Crankset: FSA SL-K Modular 30T garbaruk  -  500g (estimate)
Rear der.: - XTR m986 rear der. - 200g (tuned)
Shifter - XTR m980 shifter - 100g
Cassette: Sram XX 11-36 - 207g


I hope that the frame will weight MAX 1200g with headset.. if so, i will hit my target easy

My 062 frame weighed 1198 grams. That was the frame, 142x12 dropouts and the seat post clamp. Size 18.5 with the BSA threaded bottom bracket.

I'm 5'11" and the 18.5 fits great. I think you're on the right track with going 18.5.
