    I have a 18. Im a lot taller than 6ft. It fits me fine. Is there any way for you to ride it before you buy it?

    The Haro sizing doesn't match allot of other mfg sizing. My 2010 Mary SS 18 "sizes out the same as my Surly Pugsley (Large frame). The 20" would have me layed over and an improper knee to pedal relationship. Measure your current ride in the important areas and go from there.. PS also remember that the cranks on the 18-20" frames have the 180 MM length, compaired to the normal 175mm.

    I'm 6'4" and ride a 20". Fits me fine. I think you'll be good on an 18"

    Hello!

    Do you think the Mary SS (2009) 20'' is too big for me when I'am 180cm tall and my inseam is 79cm?

    Edit: Do you think I will need any special tools to setup the bike? I ordered it from winstanleysbikes.

    Standover on the 20" Mary is 33" (~83cm). For your height (~5'10"-5'11") I think the 20" Mary is too large. You may be able to make some adjustments with the EBB and maybe a shorter stem, but I'd opt for a properly sized frame if I was buying a new one.

    Ok, hopefully the 18'' won't be too small for me.

    at 1,88 or around 6'2 with 88 inseam I'm wondering of 20" mary would be a tad too big for me? Thoughts? I'm just about ready to make the order.

    I don't think it's going to be too big. Just buy it!
