In short if you would like to purchase a Mongoose Fireball, you can check your LBS for pricing and sizing information. If you find the right size Fireball but not in your price range, then try searching through craigslist or eBay for a used one. Also AFAIK unless you know what year your looking for, it will be hard to find the exact dimensions, as in most cases the frame design changes with each new year.

Now as far as sizing, it's a little bit hard going just by height; instead measure your in-seam (from your foot to your crotch). Your in-seam minus 3" will be a good 'stand over height' for a mountain bike. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong here; I've always thought that was a good rule of thumb .
