Found a 19" Bridgesone MB-2. I have a 35" Inseam

I have a thread in the Classic and Vintage forum and we're discussing size. I found a local Bridgestone MB-2 with a 19" frame. I rarely come across nice older MTBs. I have a 35" inseam. Would this bike be out of the question? I read that sizing is more lax with mountain bikes. If I should have a 21"-22" frame, could I possibly swing it. Maybe with a lot of seatpost and a tall, long stem with riser bars? How many of you prefer a considerably smaller frame?

Just looking for opinions! Sorry for cross posting!

Here's the bike. It already has a pretty tall stem.



Thanks!

my inseam is 32, and I ride a 22'' frame. it's supposedly too big for me but it's actually fine. this should be okay if you raise the seat and stuff. you are right, with mountain bikes, the size is more lax.
