    I've never heard of any of those before. A quick google search, however, came up with bikes that look like they are department store labels. Where did you find these bikes?

    From looking at the prices online (around 200-300), I'm thinking you can do alot better by looking for a bike on sale or buying a cheaper model of a regular name like Giant or Specialized.

    You can find some killer deals out there, and you might end up with a nice bike for only a bit more than the price of one of the ones you listed, and it will ride MUCH much MUCH better.

    I have never heard of them either. If your looking for a good bike at a inexpensive price with a quality name check out Ibex. They are a net company & offer a excelent bike for the price.

    I'm 5'10" and ride a 19" bike. I'd say a 21" bike would be very large for you.

    The best way to find out is to take it for a test ride, if possible.
    We all get it in the end.

    A 21 inch bike would be way big for you, how did you come up with that?

    Never heard of any of 'em.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    You will be better with a 15" frame. If you decide to go the Ibex route they are very helpfull on the sizing.
