Thanks guys, I was tempted but I really want to re-live my first real bike experience with the same colour, black was a boring option on the elite BITD but it didnt float my boat - midnight sky really does look mint
My GT Tequesta I had in 92 (also stolen :evil: ) was an 18", I bought a 16" to replace it last year as I always thought the 18" was too big - I was wrong! The 16" was very small, short and the front end was very low. If it helps I am 5'7.5" with a 29" (ish) inside leg.
I'm afraid it is mate, this is the 16" I bought last year which is too small, it measures 16" C-C which is how the GT's are sized (and 18" ish C-T)
This is my original 18" frame, again 18" C-C, and around 20" C-T:
20" ones are huuuuuuge and I couldn't even get a leg over them, and 14" ones are very rare and very tiny. My wife has a 1999 GT in the 12.5" size, still measured C-C for the size, which I can't even test ride to check brakes and stuff as my knee hits the bars!
