I'd agree with Chris there nsjoe, I'm 88kg surfing the 5'6" and its a good amount of volume for me. Id normally ride 29-30L, so its perfect for me.

I mean, me choosing 5'6" - 29odd L was perfect for my 88kg frame, but I reckon I could have actually survived on the 5'4" with some wierdness to get used to.
