6'2" and I have two 19.5" bikes and just bought a 21" bike. I really love the bigger bike and wish I would have made the move earlier.

It's hard to get the same comparison with mountain bikes because there are differences in fit between full suspension and hardtails, as well as riding style differences (i.e., DH, FR, XC, etc. bikes all fit differently/have different fit considerations).

6'6" and ride a 23" hardtail. Could probably go down to a 22 or maybe 21, but this ginormous thing is rad.
