    FS-sizing for a shorty:D

    I'm about to go FS for the first time, most likely buying a kona coiler. I'm 5.54 and my inseam is 30"
    my arm length is 23.6 inches

    will the 15" coiler be good for me?

    I have a 19 inch coiler and I am 5'9". It is a little too big for me, so the 15" should probably be good for you. It is a nice bike, especially if you don't have a lot of lift access.

    what about the spring on the vanilla(i'm getting a 2006 on sale)? is it a 450lbs or smth? i weigh approx. 165 pounds, will a 450lbs spring handle that? I'm not gonna be doing anything huge anytime soon, mainly trails and smaller jumps
