If you were to come into my (hypothetical) bike shop, I would have you try out the 17 and 18.5, maybe the 20, and go from there.

One of us (or both) is getting a bit confused here.

The numbers 24 and 26 probably refer to tire/wheel size (24 inch, 26 inch). A 24" size mountain bike frame would be HUGE and is in fact a rare beast if not impossible to find.

Here is my suggestion to you-

At the top of the opening page of this forum read this and educate yourself a bit- Sticky: Please Read Before asking Question: MTB FAQ.

Also, when you go to the bike shop, they will (if they are any good) try to help fit you on the right sized bike.

ya thanks, i figured since the guy has had his bike for 2 years and does a lot of biking i think he would know about the sizes hes talking about , guess he got mixed up with the tire and frame, ( sorta hard to do that but what ever) thanks for clearing that up for me, srry and i probably wont be listening to him.
