Thinking of getting my OH a retro Kona and I'm not sure if she'd need a 16" or an 18" frame. Or did they ever do 17"?

At 5'4, I'd expect a 16" frame to be about right. My 5'8" wife fits most 17" frames nicely.

I'm about that height (it's not just a username :wink: ) and TBH I find my 17" Cindercone a touch too big, I should have held out for a 16" really.

I'm 5'6-and-a-bit but have short legs and my 16 is spot on
So yeah, 16"
