I'm 5'11 1/2 with a 29 inseam. Long torso/short legs.

I ride around on a 08 Giant Yukon FX medium and feel like a circus bear but the stand over height is about right. I've compared the geometry of each Dawg frame and the Giant.

No Kona shops very close to Kansas with bikes on the floor to try.

Anybody out there with similar problem? Thanks

What year Dawg are you looking at. The standover height changed from 07 to 08.
I am 6' with a 32" inseam. I had an 18" 07 Dawg Primo. The size felt ok, but I showed a lot of seatpost. I now have a 19" 08 frame. It does not feel any bigger but I show a little less seatpost. My wife rides a 20" 07 The King which also does not feel too big for me.
So I would say -
If its an 07 or earlier frame go for the 18.
If its an 08 or later frame, go for the 19".
Sounds like you might need some more top tube length but good standover. I have a friend that has to custom order frames for this same reason.:madman:
