    ok well im gettign a new kona stinky, for 1300. the onyl size they have it in is a 18inch frame. i am 510 and i wana no if this is gonna be to big of a bike for me and whatnot. i ride alot of freeride, occasional dh, and sum jumps. am i gonna have problems with this bike or sumthing? and is there anyway i can make it feel smaller by putting a 24inch rim on the back?

    You'll be fine cause the top tube on that thing is really short. Compare it to what you're riding today (stand over and top tube measurements).

    the only thing a 24 in rear would do is maybe raise your head angle and take down the standover like 1-1.5 inches, and stinkys run small so i think that if your 510 then a 18 would be fine for you
