I feel newb asking this, but here goes:
Looking at a 2006 Kona Dawg Deelux or Primo and I'm smack dab in between the 15 and 17 inch as far as sizing (from riding at least, I'm 5'6" 160lb). Did mainly XC in past, but like to get more into trail/all mountain. Seems like the smaller frame would allow me to muscle it around or adjust it more, but not sure it that's a good way to get into trouble. Is a slightly larger frame a more stable trail bike/small jumper even if I'm a little stretched out (just seems like I would have harder time pulling up, etc.)?
