Hi all,

Ive been knocking about as a guest for a while and reading some of the great advice out there already. I've been doing between 20 - 40 miles in a week on my old mountain bike (Merlin Malt 1) it's been a fantastic bike but I can't help but feel it's a little too small for me.

I've got my heart sent on a 2015 Voodoo Bizango, after reading some of the reviews I feel like it's the right bike for me to move onto. My mate who I've been riding with has the 2014 model and I'm always surprised how it just eats up the miles and quite easily pulls away. In September I can get the bike through a bike to work scheme. What I want to know is what frame size will be best for me? I'm 6.0" tall and when i have done a height to frame size chart it says 19.5" frame would be best, so should I go for the 20" frame?! I have read others on this forum saying that they find the 18" frame is plenty big enough.

It's hard to always try the frame sizes as not many of the Halfords near me have the Bizango in stock let alone in the two frame sizes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
