    can I ride a 22 1/4 inch frame?

    A 20 inch frame is a better match for me, but can I still ride a bike that is 2 inches too large for me?

    It's a Dutch bicycle by the way. ..

    It depends. Sounds big. What type of bars? Easyer to ride a big frame with swept back bars than flat or drop.

    I have the same inseam as you. And I measured the height of the seat on one of my bikes, ~23 inches. I'm guessing you could ride the 22 1/4 inch frame with the seat almost all the way down.
