    The frame size that fits. It's not an exact science, at least for MTB's.

    Fit has a lot to do with height, torso length, leg length, what feels best.

    If you're able to go to bike shop, get them to help fit you. And, the bike that they pick to 'fit' you may/may not be the one that 'feels' right.

    Sight unseen, in a vacuum, over the internet: at 5.6 ft. a 15" or 16" frame might 'fit'.

    OP-

    Complete sentences and a little more attention to grammar will go a long ways toward folks understanding what you are trying to say.

    Just sayin'. Thanks.
