it kinda runs big... a 22" is HUGE... I can hardly stand over it, and I'm a lanky 6'-6'1

You'll have to post pix if you do build up a Monkey. How have you liked that 29er experience so far?

Yeah, I would. I was thinking about it today some more and even a 20" gives me the bare minimum 2" of standover, so I imagine you'd be in the same ballpark.
