    'lo all...

    I have a chance to purchase a Kona Stab (FR/DH bike) soon...

    The bike is an 18" frame size.

    I am somewhere around 6'2" to 6'3" in height.

    In your opinion, is this a good idea?

    Keep in mind the kind of bike it is.

    It'll be used for hcor riding, jumping, DH, etc.

    Thanks, Merly

    That should be fine, keep in mind however that it will be small (good for harcore riding) and a pain to pedal uphill, but I am sure you already know that.

    Hi GHR

    Thanks for the input.

    Any idea what frame size I *should* be riding?

    ie: If I went into a BS, what size would they recommend?

    Thanks, Merlin

    Either a 19inch or a 21 depending on the type of bike. That would be a large frame if they do not offer the size in inches.
