more anectotal: I'm 6'3" (barely), have a 32" inseam, I ride a 60cm roadie and an 18" mtb (though I'm thinking a 19 would be better).
Back in college, I went and bought my first mtb. The LBS trusted my feel more than actually fitting me properly. I ended up buying a 22" frame. Two years later (and much smarter and tired of what felt like an RV on the trails) I bought a 20" DB Apex frame and swapped shizzy over. The moral? Go test ride a bike as similar as you can. It may not be identical, but you'll have a better ballpark than just reading about it....
