    My commuter bike is a Nishiki 20" mtb. A bit large for me; I have to lean it when stopped in traffic but I feel really comfortable on it. I also have a 17.5" Felt which is more my size and I enjoy this one on weekends. Finally I have an old Peugeot road bike which is probably around 17" - 18" which doesn't gt much use these days.
    BTW, i'm 5ft5.
    I think for my height I wouldn't go beyond 20" but I would certainly buy another bike up to that size even if it's not the right size for me.

    5,8" 17.5 TREK Fuel 80, perfect size for trails, if I rode more mild trails I would have gotten a 19.5

    I think its a 20" K2, its the large size, I like my frames a touch on the small side. I'm 6-2 and 230lbs I also have a 56cm cannondale road frame with a really long seatpost and really really tall stem

    the bike I am on in my avatar is my roomates minibike, I think its a 10" sad thing is he fits on this better than a real motorcycle, I, as is obvious in the picture, dont fit and cant turn, which has led to many driveway crashes

    it's been a really long time since i have been to this forum, no being under 5 feet tall does not make someone a midget, it also doesn't mean i have any type of dwarfism, i am just short, i often see people my same hight or even shorter and i live in a normal american town

    On the 2004 Stinky I rode a 17" frame which is the medium. On the 2006 Stinky I am riding a 15.5" frame which is a medium. I am about 5'8". I guess it just depends on the style of frame you gettiing.
