    kona sizing, any help?

    looking to buy a caldera if i can stomach the colour....

    could anyone confirm how they measure frame size (ie center to center, or is it centre to top of seat post holder ?)

    thanks

    p.s 5' 7 and a half with 30'' inseam - cant decide on 16'' or 17''

    You should use the top tube length for sizing more than the seat tube length.

    Ride the bikes. Then decide.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Measure the top tube length.

    Seat tube length is secondary.
