    5' 6.5" & 31.5" cycling inseam.What size Kona Unit?

    I think I'm probably in between the 15 and 17. Does the Unit work better as a smaller size with longer stem or a larger size with shorter stem? I'm a bit concerned the 15 might be too small. Suggestions?

    The 15 would be too small. I'm just a tiny bit shorter than you. I like the size 16 or 17 Kona bikes in general. I found the size 15 Explosif I've demo'd to be rideable but too small.

    That's what I decided and what the bike shop recommended. The shop doesn't stock the Unit, so I had to order one. The measurements of the 17 are close to what I already ride, so I'm thinking it will be fine.
