    Kona big unit- what size?

    Hi, I am trying to decide what size Big Unit to get and hope someone on here can help.

    I am 5ft 9 in with a 32.5 inseam. Currently ride an 18" on one scandal with 23.7TT and 80mm stem. Thanks!

    I'd go 18. I'm 5-10 with a 32 inseam. buddy's 18 fits me perfect. Stem length will of course matter for your reach, but I'd go 18 on the frame.

    I'm 183 with 83cm inseam.
    My 19" Unit (no biggy) fits perfect for me.

    I'm 5'11 and would ride a 19", I'd say 18" for you!

    Just bought an 18" Big Unit, fits me perfect at 5'10" and 31 3/4" inseam.

    Seller was 5'8" and found it too big upfront, preferred his 26ers.

    First owner was 6'2" and too small for him.

    So I now own a hardly used super duper Big Unit. Like it a lot.



    Hope that helps.

    TBH the unit's are all damn near the same geo. I ride an 18" and my roomate has a 21. If I drop the seat post a little, it's pretty damn close to the same as mine. (he does have a shorter stem) I'd say an 18 will fit you great, but if you go a size up you'll barely, if at all notice.
