    The frame size question can be quite interesting with tons of answers.

    Start by finding your "cycling inseem" or "pubic bone height." Here is one place that explains how.http://www.rivbike.com/article/bike_..._to_measure_it

    Read, search and best of all if you have a bike shop in your area, see what they say.

    Just guessing, in a mountain bike you will be needing something at least 21" in frame size.

    You should be riding a 60-62cm frame. I have the same measurements and ride a 60cm Cannondale. I've heard LBS employees say I need anywhere from a 58 to 62 but 60 seemed perfect. It all depends on how you like to ride. I also came over from mountain biking 2 months ago.
