a 20" is good i guess but yes 21 is probably too big for you but 18 too small

no, 18 is too small, just practice with ur bike and ull get used to it and become good with it or jus get a bike w/ smaller top tube. 18 is like a flatland bike size. its too small, jus get a bike w/ smaller top tube.

If your still growing then maybe just keep it incase you have a rapid growth spurt. A 19" would prob be perfect for someone of your height.

MikeT - if your happy with you current frame then their would be no need to change, but if your knees are getting caught then the most sensible idea would be to go to 21".
