    what size coiler is right for me

    Kona joe or anyone that can help,
    I am wondering what size 05 coiler to get I am 5' 6" and I am 155 lbs My bike shop recommended a 16 inch but the site says they do not make a 16 inch coiler I fear that the 17 might be to big and the 15 might be to small if anyone knows if they do infact make a 16 inch 05 coiler, thanks Bob

    Go for the 15"

    I am 5'11" tall and went for the 17" and have had no problems with sizing, when climbing, the seatpost is at full extension though, but I think you'll be ok with the 15", theres nothing worse than being stuck with a frame that is slightly to big!!

    15 for sure...

    The top tubes are long so you can easily get away with one size down. FWIW, an amigo of 5-7 height is on a 15 and it's the right fit.

    I just got a 04 coiler on a blow out a couple days ago. I'm 5'10 and i got a small. The top tube is really long, and seems to fit me rather well. Its a little tight, but i may tweek the seat a little and maybe get a 2 inch riser bar to create a longer feel.
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    my new coiler will be 15 inches. I am 5'7. I freeride with the post all the way down, and climb with it mid-way up. It fits incredibly well. I should finish up my growth spurt at about 5'9 or 5'10, and i will still be able to fit on this bike. My new hardtail is going to be a 15.5 too.
