    Cool-blue Rhythm Help me choose the correct frame size plz! 17" or 19"???

    I am buying a new bike today! I picked an Iron Horse Sachem 4.0.

    SPECS:
    MARZOCCHI Z.1 SPORT, 160MM TRAVEL
    FOX VANILLA R 7.875"X2.25"
    SRAM X.5 TRIGGER SHIFTERS W/ SRAM X.5 REAR DERAILLUER
    FSA DYNA DRIVE CRANK W/ FSA POWER DRIVE BOTTOM BRACKET
    HAYES STROKER RIDE BRAKES AND LEVERS

    This is an All Mountain Bike, with a good amount of suspension.
    The size chart on the Iron Horse website suggests the following :
    frame size:
    15" for heights up to 5'5"
    17" for heights between 5'6"-5'8"
    19" for heights between 5'9"-5'11"
    21" for heights 6" and up

    I'm 5' 9 1/2", so the chart says to get the 19", but I think I might be better off with the 17" because of the extra suspension this bike has (I'm assuming the standover height will be a little higher on this bike than on most XC bikes with an equivalent frame size) Please reply with your opinion on which size I should get (17" or 19") so I can get a feel for what everyone thinks before I have them ship my new bike!! Thanks!

    OK so 17" or 19" for this all mountain bike? Please reply if you have an opinion.
