    Im bang on 6 foot and a 19" giant XCish bike fit me. I'm pretty even as far as torso/leg ratio goes.

    I do however ride a size small iron horse DH bike.

    5'10.5" and ride a 20" Giant Yukon
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    5' 10" is about average height for a man, so start looking with whatever the bike manufacturer labels as "medium". Proportions matter as much as total height, though, so try a variety.

    16, or 18, aka medium. I had a 19 that was perfect on fire road type riding, but was a handful on anything technical. It felt like driving a school bus in a F1 race.

    I'm 5'11" about a 33ish inseam, and was very happy with the fit of a Medium Gary Fisher 29er. In fact, my new frame pretty much duplicates the effective top tube and seat tube of a medium Fisher.

    It depends on your proportions too, not just your height. If you have short legs and a long torso you may have a different bike than someone with long legs and a short torso.
