Another one? I haven't seen a post about stinkys in ages.

Depends on how you ride. I am 6'5 and ride a 19" and found it a little to big for dh...but I like a short long bike.

Also 2005 doesn't look to be offering an xxl anymore. 19" is the limit

The 19 should fit you just right. Especially if you do alot of xc riding, it makes for a more comfortable ride then the 17 but is small enough that it works great for freeriding.
