What size bike?
New to mountain bikes. I am 5'9". What size should I be looking at? I see a nice 17" I like.
I have no idea how the sizes run...thanks.
That is about right in 5' 10 ride about 17.5-18 my cannondale is a large, depends on the frame and maker.
it is a specialized rockhopper hardtail
17" should fit fine, 16" or 18" might also work for you too. Just depends on how it feels and what you want to do. I'm 5'8" and I ride 15" and 17"
Go to the bicycle manufacturer's website and look for "geometry" links.

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Only one way to tell. Ride it.
