I'm the same height as you, and I used to have a 21" frame. Doesn't really matter IMO, as long as you can adjust the handle bars and seat to suit you.

Well depends what it's for. If you using it for off road 18" is probably spot on my bro is 6ft 4" and his kona is an 18". If your just going to use it for paths and to ride to work then you may want to go a little bigger to give your back an easier time.

^^^ On Halfords site, first question is - what size bike do I need?

I'm 6ft and ride a 19" hardtail mountain bike. I honestly don't think an 18" frame will be big enough for you.

Best thing is to go test it out, only way to tell. There is more to frame dimensions than frame hight, which doesn't take into account sloping top tube designs.

Lol was meant to be an edit not quote!
