    Read THIS the go to your local bike shop(LBS) and get fitted. That said I would say you would need a small, but the correct answer is what I previously said.

    Not to thread jack but I have a similar questions. My dad and I both bought Gary Fisher Tassajaras back in 2000, he got a X-Large and I got a Medium. Im sure I grew a little bit since I got fitted but not sure what I should be on now. I am 6' even with a 32" inseam. Any suggestion on what bike to ride?

    I'm 5' 5" @ 145 lbs

    I ride a Small.

    For bikes measured in Inches then 15" to 17" depending on the bike/brand.

    At that height, you will probably fit on a large, depending on the bike. Possibly a medium, depending again on the bike, and how you like the cockpit.
