Just wondering if anybody knows if that bike would fit my frame? My weight is around 170lbs.
I can't find a bike in a LBS of this size to try out but I found a used bike but it's kinda far and I'd rather get another opinion whether or not I would fit this size frame.

No. Find a 20" or 21" and your back will thank you.

Yes it'll be fine. You'll appreciate the lighter, stiffer frame.

One vote for "maybe, and if you want it badly enough you'll drive and find out." Bikes are measured differently. One company's 19" is another's 20". Head tube and seat tube angle also make a big difference, since they change the reach and stack, which are more important measurements than seat tube length anyway. Additionally, not everyone who is 6'2 has the same proportions.

Thanks for the posts everyone!
I'll go and check it out but I'll keep in mind all the comments.
