    What size 2013 Kona Honzo?

    If I go with a Honzo, I'm having a tough time deciding whether I'd go with a Medium or Large frame on the 2013. I'm 5'11.5" or 6' with shoes and currently ride a 19" Trek X-cal with a 19' seat tube and a 24.5" effective top tube. I ride my x-cal with a 90mm stem and a 10mm setback post. The Medium Honzo has an 18" seat tube and a 24" effective top tube and the Large has a 18.8" seat tube and a 25" effective top tube. Any rider feedback here. I feel like I would need to run a 90+ stem on the Medium and would run a shorter stem on the Large. I do a fair bit of steep climbing but also am starting to get more aggressive on jumps and small drops, etc.

    FWIW the Honzo is meant to be ridden with a 50 or 60mm stem. I would go Large with a 50mm stem.
