Bike geometry/sizing.

Hi

Could do with some advice from someone in the know about the above subject. I am after a mid 90s Raleigh M-TRAX Frame. But the problem is the sizing. I am currently a 17inch on a current day hardtail but I am sure bikes used to be different. i.e. Non-sloping top tubes.

Do I just go for the size I roughly am or do I get a bigger size?

Cheers


P.S. Anyone know of anyone with a M-TRAX? :D

    I had a raleigh activator 2 that was 18" my brother had a MAX a couple of years later same size, my 18" frame now is much bigger than those, I would say 20" at least. I have an old raleigh 22" bike in the garden with the straight tube and that is similar size to the 18"
