    Theres no real way to tell untill you've sat on them. Though I would say the 21 would be better - but you really should try before you buy.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    If I was 6ft tall I'd go for a 19", but that's just me. If the choice is between the two, 21".

    I'm 5"11 1/2. I got a 19" Hardrock. Fits great. Try a 19 or 21. 23 sounds too big. Good luck.

    At 6ft, don't even think about the 23 unless you have extremely long legs. Like everyone else said, try out a 19 and 21 to see which is more comfortable and a better fit.

    i have a 21" and im 6'3" and it fits, even feels a little big, so i would go with the 19.

    Im so glad i got a the 21 inch i was worried it might be to small cause my palms hurt after riding but i guess that becuase i need to ride more to get my palms use to it. The 19 inch felt a little small for me when i tried it.Thanks for your input everyone .
