    I'm 5'6'' I have an 18 inch frame some models come with 19 inch options.

    I'm 5ft7ish. In mountain bikes I'm a size 17 or 18 inch or a medium frame. Dunno about road bikes though..

    Thanks alot guys for the replies now just gotto find something decent

    Mite b better tryin it first as they can vary. Mines a large and im 5ft 9 so maybe a medium as others have said

    Go to a bike shop and try out several with the view of " maybe " buying one, when you have found the right size for you tell the shop you need " go away to think about " which one you would like to buy, then you can buy the correct size from where ever you like.
