    What size bike would fit me best? and a couple questions.

    I haven't biked much since i was 18 and want to start again as the summers come around. I just turned 21 now, and I've grown a couple inches since then.

    I'm looking for a bike mostly for downhill/trail riding with a bit of city travel to work (close to home). I was interested in a Norco Rampage/Manik.

    I'm 6'4/5, with a leg length of 34/35 (for jeans).
    I was thinking a 20-21" frame would be best for me but I'm not sure since I've been out of the loop for so long.

    Thanks.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 2 "Racing Edition"--The bike shop owner said it's toast. R.I.P.
    2014 or 2015 CAAD 10 3 coming soon. Decision time.

    I agree with RonH. I recently went bike shopping and discovered that depending on the manufacture of the bike, I fit a 54 or 55 cm frame, and even then my LBS had to switch out stems.
