I'd go to KonaWorld.com and then their Tech section and drill down to the detailed Sizing Charts for specific frame sizes. Lots of good info in that Tech area.

Compare your inseam to the standover height.. I have a 30-31" inseam and picked a bike with a 29" standover height and it fits me fine.

Most likely a 19" but its always good to try a 19" Kona first.

I'm 6 feet and ride a 19" frame. It is definitely a good idea to test ride one though.
