Can't see the geometry charts...
Kona's Jake series runs big. I'd ride a 60 roadie, and have a 58 JTS and have been riding a 60 Jake (bought it for my dad, breaking it in). The jake is actually too big for me...too stretched out. I'm 6'3, but with relatively short legs. I could probably be comfy on the 60 with a shortened stem, but the 58 JTS fits me perfectly, with the seat about 3 inches above the bars.
Make sure you can try it before the purchase. Great bikes, but definitely on the big side.
