Ive had a few different bikes in differing sizes. Specialized 19' felt great, dmr switchback 18' felt great, kona caldera 20' felt big.

At present i have a 'merida 20.5' ' that feels fine to ride!!

Frame sizes to me have always been a mystery so i seek some advice.

The size 18' stand over height

The size 20' stand over height

Do these Dawes bikes have sloping style tubes similar to kona frames? Anyone who has one could you shed some light on the matter

    Only way to tell for sure is to go and see it for yourself I am afraid.

    There is a reasonable slope on the watoga, yes, but if you type it into google you will get pictures of this won't you?

    Standover height is almost irrelevant for mtb's... you should consider the top tube length, bb height off the ground and the tube angles as key factors.
