Frame size isn't that big a deal if you're only going to poke along at 10 to 15mph. Things start to change over 20mph. And, if you're on a too small bike on a long steep downhill, watch out for speeds over 30mph. It can become very frightening on a too small frame. So generally speaking, IMHO a larger frame is better for higher speeds and big downhill runs.
