    Parker riders, what size should I get?

    I'm going to be ordering a parker, a little decisive about what size to get. I'm 5'7 - 5'8ish, about 160lbs. Right now Im riding a gt chucker hardtail which im comfortable on. I'm thinking the 17" Parker specs are the most relative to the chucker. can anyone give me some first hand info.

    heres the specs....

    Here's what i think you'll experience:
    just a tiny touch slower steering, but that tiny bit more stable. You may or may not even feel it.

    2 inches more standover; how much airspace do your nads have when you straddle the GT? If you're close now, you better learn to put a foot down with some body english to clear your 'jewels'.
    A bike is the only drug with no bad side effects....
