Im just a hair over 5'10". This is an 18" frame. I spent a ton of time trying to figure out whether to go with 16" or 18" because i didn't want to be too stretched out. The fork is a Kona P2 off of a Kona Unit i picked up used with the BB7's for a bargain. Rotors are 180 front and rear. You could make a 160 rear work with a 20mm IS adapter but its really difficult to adjust the cable clamp and you dont get all of the travel of the sliders before the arm hits the seat stay. I played with it for a while and had it working by pre tightening the cable and taking up some of the travel in the arm prior to bolting the caliper to the frame. I wouldnt recommend it though because the second you want to adjust anything you'll instantly have 45 minutes of mucking around to do. So i swapped out the adapter to a 40mm IS and a 180 rotor and everything fits perfectly now.

This bike has gone through a lot of bike changes over the years.
It has settled on a fixed commuter/tourer to which I think it handles well.
