    Hi, you could try this calculator - http://www.competitivecyclist.com/za...der=M&units=in however its best if you can actually try the bike out first to see whch size fits best.

    i stand about 5'10 and prefer to ride 17 inch frames. most mtn posts are +350mm and can easily be adjusted to promote proper leg extension. it's a matter of preference for me, i feel confident and in total control riding a 17 frame.

    the best thing to do is go to a lbs and get fitted for a bike, both pre and post purchase. "pre" to determine what frame you should use and feel in most control of, "post" to properly fine tune the adjustments for optimal performance.
