Ride different bikes and see what you like. There's no right or wrong size. I'm 5'9.5 on a 21" randy brown because that geo is what I like. I know taller guys that ride shorter toptubes and shorter guys that ride longer toptubes. It's all preference but I would say 20.75 is a good place to start


I'm on the vital legit list!

I'm 6 and I ride a 21" (and i really want to try bigger) but as tomdom was saying, it´s all about personnal preference.
But with something between 20.75" and 21.25" should be good for you.

20.75 is where it's at. I'm the same height and rode a 20.75 and it was perfect. I'm getting a 20.8 next , slight difference.

Testimony and apologies

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

im 5'9"
I find some "feels longer" despite the shorter TT. now im using eastern grim reaper 20.5" with wtp mad maxx. take into account of geometry of frame+bar+stem combined. i exchanged my 20.8" haro sd v2 (temporarily) with my friend's eastern, and his bar felt horrible . also tried a junglerider indamix 20.5" and it felt longer than the haro 20.8"
