I'm in between 5'9 and 5'10 and I'm looking at a few frames between 21 and 21.15. I've always felt comfortable on a 20.75 and have ridin well on frames that I didn't know where 21's. I feel like I just want more space but I don't want to buy something and hate it. Any feedback on yor experience would be cool

If it helps, the 21 I had was a Benny l and it was really comfy at the time

I am the same height as you and i like 21 and even 21.25, not so much for street on the 21.25 but with the right geo itd be fine. I think it helps for barspins and everything to have that extra space! Personally, a 20.75 with a 13.6 rear end feels good and so does a 21 inch, 13.1 rear end bike. roughly the same wheelbase so it isnt so hard to spin as a 21 with a 13.6 rear end. If you have a problem hitting your knee on your stem, get a longer toptube, otherwise, dont worry about it. Chase Hawk runs a 21 and he is pretty short, so there is a pro reference towards that.

Thanks man. I ride like 80/20 street to park mix so I need quick manuals and spins but still decently stable. I was thinking the 21.1 wza v3 would be dope

I'm 5'10 and 130lbs and ride a 21". The only other frame size i've ridden is a 20.5" and that was wait to tiny for me. I feel like a 21" gives you really good stability as well as room, but isnt too big so you can still huck tricks and spin fast and whatnot. It also depends on how good your bike control is, cause really tall guys can ride small frames and be just as well off, and vise versa.
