For six years I road a 20" frame. I am 6'2" and I was able to ride it any where. Jumps, technical single track, steep decentsand so forth. Granted it was a bit clumbsy on very tight technical sections but for long distance and hill climbing it was great. If you feel comfy on the bike then stick with it. If it feels as though you can not manage it through turns or on technical sections then consider a smaller frame but not a 17". Even if you were doing steep technical rides I would suggest no smaller then 18". Below is a pic of me and my 20"carbon bike.
