    Kona Frame Sizes

    I have got a 2007 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR in size large. Thinking of getting a Kona Hei Hei as a second bike, what frame size is equivalent to specialized large, is it 19 or 20 inch?

    Measure your seat tube from the bottom bracket (crank arm) center to the top, where the seat post inserts. Then you'll have your size.

    Kona frames are measured from BB center to top. How tall are you?

    I'm 6ft 2, the Specialized Large frame is 19inch. Just wondering how that compares to the Kona Hei Hei frame.

    Also does anyone know if the Kona Hei Hei RP2 shock has lockout?

    At 6'2 a 19" or 20" will work for you. If you plan on doing a lot of technical and /or drops - get the 19". A smaller frame will move around underneath you more efficiently because you'll be out of the saddle more often.
