smaller top tubes are eazier to turn, but when you ride dirt it eazier to control in the air.....but the tall thing is the most important

going from my experiences i have actually learned that having a longer top tube for trail riding (21") you have more control of the bike in the air AND while just flowing...having a 19" to like 20" or even a 20.5" frame might not be the best thing to get if you are into the trails scene...just going by my experiences.

being tall is a little important for frame size choice too but its really all about how the frame feels to you.

Longer frames, like 21", with short backends manual best. Shorter frames, such as 20", are supposed to be easier to spin.

I went 21" with the new frame, that was a prudent choice....no? I am 6'.
