What size bike frame should I buy?
 
I'm 6'7" and I need to know what size frame I should buy. Please help!!!!!!!!!!

at least 22.5", possibly 25"

Check out some manufacturer's sites, many will have a sizing chart.

well what are you going into here I would say at least 22" as well. With a nice long seatpost (400mm for maxiumum adjustability)

I'm planning on buying a Specialized Rockhopper (good for mountain biking and road biking) on ebay for cheap. It's a 23" frame, and I didn't know if it would be long enough. I've ridden bikes 20" and shorter and they've given me knee aches and back aches. Should I wait and try to find a 25" or bigger?

Try going to a local bike shop, and seeing what they reccomend, and what size bike they fit to you. It may be more expensive, but in the end, you'll get a bike that fits you...

Or just find out the size you need at the LBS, and then buy it from eBay. ;)

I think if you're going to seek the LBS support and advice on something, then you should purchase it there.

Well yeah, but lots of people don't. Personally, I would never ever buy a bike on eBay...

bought mine on ebay and couldn't be happier, but I think it's wrong to go to a bike shop, use their resources and knowledge, and then leave them hanging. When I discussed having a wheel built and what not I had them build it for me even though online would have been 50 dollars cheaper...easily.

If your a savvy ebayer, you can buy just about anything and be happy
