    Impossible to say from the picture alone. The Parker is a freeride/jump bike combination. The difference in seat tube length between sizes is minimal, Small - 14.29", Medium - 14.33", and Large - 14.46". So you can see by those measurements that the Parker is not a "traditionally" sized frame. The main differences between the sizes is top tube length and wheel base, Small - TT 20.98/WB 41.61, Medium - TT 22.08/WB 42.72, and Large - TT 23.82/WB 44.45.

    The best/easiest measurement to use for determining the size of the frame is going to be the top tube length.

    The bottom line is, the Parker is, more or less, a purpose built bike. So traditional "sizing" really doesn't apply. It falls somewhere between an XC bike and a Freeride bike, and leans rather heavily towards a Dirt Jumper, or a BMX bike on steroids.

    Anyway, get a reasonably accurate TT measurement and you'll be able to figure out the size.

    Good Dirt
