    I'm 5'9" and have an M '09 Gutterball. The Small should be ok if you can get enough seatpost safely showing. If not, you should be able to flip it for a profit. You got 30" of room with shoes on? :-)

    Haha. Thanks for the input guys. Looks like the Gutterball wasnt meant for me.

    I didn't really like how the frame looks anyways so I guess I'll pass
