Judging from what I've seen on this thread and in the bike world am I right in thinking some of the older Konas were available much bigger frame-sized years ago?

some of the older designs had less aggresively sloping top tubes so they looked bigger. Longer headtubes too.

but they are shorter in the top tube and not designed for bounce

Basically that ^ the extra inch on the top tubes makes them look gigantic. I think they changed that around 93/94.
