It's more about inside leg and body length than frame size in inches, i'm 6ft 2" but i've only got a 33" inside leg at best but a long body, i can get away with a 17" with a long stem.

I don't think I've not found any frame less than 20" that I've been completely happy with, but I have plenty of frames I haven't tried yet!

I'm 6'1" with a 33" inside leg.

Ridden everything from 16s up to 20s.

Just swapped my 16" MsIsle which was too short and would of needed all of a 400mm post out the top to pedal correctly for an 18" 456 carbon which I've manage to feel right at home on.

Lots to think about apart from seat tube length.
