It's 18.5" or so. Somewhere between 18 and 19 inches - I don't follow the specs on paper of most bikes, but I actually ride most frames before I buy them.

I had ridden 19"+ top tube frames for years, but fell in love with the GT Show when I rode that. Since I'm only 5'8" tall, which is several inches shorter than a lot of the pro riders who work on designing the frames, I wanted something shorter. Jumelin is more my height and the frames that he is on fit me a lot better.

I think a lot of kids buy bikes because their favorite pro rides/designs the bike and get screwed because the pro rider is 25, is 6 feet tall, and weighs 170 pounds, while the kid is five and a half feet tall and barely weighs 120 pounds. The pro bike will not fit the small rider very well at all - it will be way to big for them... But, just as fun!

Now, if I could only do half the tricks that Alex Jumelin does...
