    Komodo 14" or 16.5"? I've read that some like the smaller 14"

    hello, looking at the komodo and though I have tested the 16.5 frame and it felt fine -- I'm 5' 9" with barefoot inseam of 31", riding inseam of approx 32", longer torso -- I am wondering if the smaller 14" frame is a possibility for me? I read some comments here and on other boards where one rider my exact size praised the 14" as being perfect.

    the key spec comparison for me:

    -- TT is 22.24 on the 14", 23.43 on the 16.5 inch
    -- standover is 29.13 on the 14", 30.31" on the 16.5 inch

    I imagine the ultimate choice depends on type of riding being done: I do tight rock and root-strewn singletrack mixed with urban messing around

    I like the standover of 29.13 on the 14" but the top tube is relatively short.

    Anyone close to my size riding the 14" komodo? comments?

    thanks
