I am buying a cube hanzz pro freeride but I cant decide on the size. The dealer has only Medium size so I cant ride the large one. I am 182 cm tall 76kg and have step length of 89cm. What shall I do?

Surely trying the medium size will tell you everything? Also you're the same height as me, so I imagine a large frame will have too long a reach. –  cmannett85 Feb 7 '13 at 8:11
    
XC i ride a large which is perfect. for a freeride the dealer told me go with the medium will have better handling –  artemis Feb 7 '13 at 8:14

There are better, more general questions about sizing frames - e.g. bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/3049/…, bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/4030/… - this question will be of little use to anyone else even if someone can productively answer the original. –  Unsliced Feb 7 '13 at 8:15

I'd be suspicious of any dealer advising me to buy what he has in stock, even if it's a bit too small. I can't find it, but didn't we have a question along the lines of "The bike I want is either too small or too large, which should I get?" If so, this is a duplicate of that, but IMO not of the others. –  Neil Fein Feb 7 '13 at 16:13

I would suggest trying another dealer and taking your potential next bike for a spin. They should allow at least ride in their parking lot.

Bike sizing is important, do not try to save a buck buying a bike which does not fit.
