Depends what you like.
A longer top tube and shorter back end makes it easier to manual I hear.
And besides, it's only .75 of an inch bigger than 20", which is what I have.

And there's always the possiblilty that you'll grow?
Guess its a bit like buying clothes that you can grow into.

you will pretty much see riders of all sizes riding all different length frames. you just need to see whats most comfortable for you and your riding style. i did some searching on google about this to try and give you more information and i found a thread on another board where riders posted their hieght and top tube length: http://www.pinkbike.com/forum/listcomments/?threadid=21090&pagenum=1

so as you can see you will see 6' guys riding 20" and 5' 5" guys riding 21"

well im tall.I'm 16 years old, 6' on the dot. i weight 170lbs, not sure how many Kg that is, my guess is 77?

more importantly, my frame is 21'' long. and i read above that .75 of an inch doesnt make a difference, well that is ver incorrect. there is no possible way i ccould ride a 20.25...wayyyyy too small for me. ive even tried a 21.25 and i thought it was way too big, thats only .25 difference. i think you should get a 20.5 at the most, and you will still grow into it. if you get any bigger, then for your next frame you can get a 20.75 if u need to.
