Mountain Biking - Maneuverability VS. Power

A smaller frame gives you more control and maneuverability on the trials. (At least I think so). When do you think a frame becomes too small were your loosing more from lack of power then gaining from maneuverability?

Depends on your size and your preference. My ideal of a small frame is freaking huge for most people. My idea of a really small frame is a persons typical frame. Hard to say. For me too small is a Kona 15"...kona 17" is decent for djing and trials and 19" is my fr/xc frame size...(all kona sizing)
Well i'm 6'2 riding on a 19 inch XC frame. I love the control but feel the loos of power.

That frame sounds too big actually. I am 6'5 and find 19" frames pretty big for most fun stuff.
