    Get the duster, great bike, looks great aswell...

    these bikes are similarly specced, the amasa elite is more I suppose agressive XC with a longer travel fork etc...so depends what you're looking for outta a new bike.

    i was looking at the sizing for the amasa elite, im 5 11" but im still growing should i get a medium or large?

    don't know the sizing on them ..I presume as they go to xl it'll be something like M-17.5 L-19 XL-21...are you able to get to winstanleys or another stockist to try.
