Mike, if you're 179cm, you'd be a Longer frame for sure, not the Long (smallest). Because the seat tube is so steep, and the head angle so slack, the static Reach number doesn't do the sizing justice. They are also designed to be run with 30-35mm long stems instead of the usually 50+mm stems most bikes are fitted with. The Django has a Reach of 460mm (according to the Devinci website) so quite similar to my Slash. When I compared my Large Slash to the Longest G16 there was'only' about an inch increase in the distance saddle to bars, something i felt i could live with - especially as that was all i found second hand in NA! At 6'5" AJ is definitely on the tall end for a Longest - apparently he rode both that and Xtra Longest before buying the shorter size. At 180cm i'm on the low end for that frame size so it'll be interesting to see how it works out... P.S Apologies for the mixed units.
