So I was looking around the bike shops in my area and one had a 19" gary fisher Mullet. The frame looked solid, but I am wondering what size frame I should go with for my height.

What do you guys think of the mullet?

Alright, I guess it's not cool to want an "urban" bike.
I want a bike I can ride around in the city (not in the woods), instead of running into trees and slamming into rocks i'll run over small children and hit cars. And since I suck so much at riding, I probably will kill people and maim cats with my new city bicycle. Since most cities have skateparks, I will probably attempt to ride my new city bike through a pipe or slide on a rail inside said skating park. I will alter my face horribly every time I fall. I'll realize that my new city bike was not made for sliding rails and I will never slide a rail again.

If your looking to use it at a skate park or doing drops off stairs and stuff like that the seat post length doesn't matter. In fact the longer the seat post the more it's gonna whack you in the nuts which just isn't good. Look at the Top Tube length. Large DJ/Urban frames are around 23.5" which is what I ride at 6'4", however I'm used to riding BMX so even the 22" TT frame seemed big to me.

The Mullet is a decent platform but give some serious thought into finding a steel frame, it will last longer and be a lot better at taking some serious abuse. I have a GT Chucker 2.0 which is nearly the same as the Mullet but I'm looking at getting a Large Jamis Kromo.

I am 6' with a 33" inseam. I like mine, 15"frame size, and I prefer urban. Maybe I should get with the times and get some tight pants, ride strictly dj, or ONLY on MY 20", and buy jdm parts for my car. While rocking out to something ghey like Chevelle or Nickleback, and dreaming of the day I will be old enough to buy PBR.
There are many other great choices of frames, but if you're looking to start, its a good starting point, 19" is way to big though. Ride for yourself, not because BurgerKing tells you it dumb.

HEY! How dare you compare Chevelle and Nickleback! Nickleback blows....lol :p Just giving ya crap. Screw tight pants though...and I could already buy PBR if I wanted, but prefer something with a little better taste...

But seriously how can you say no one rides urban anymore. When you don't have any DJs near and you feel like hucking yourself off of some stuff what do you got left? I'm glad my college has got some decent stuff to drop off of, otherwise I would be losing my mind. I've got a Giant STP SS, and its been holding up real well to my abuse. May want to check one of those out too?

Hey, that whole thing I wrote about the skate park wasn't supposed to make any sense.
Thanks for all the input though, I thought I wasn't going to get any info after that first guy posted.

No worries...

I have been riding street for a little while. I dont know much but what I do know I will share.

And dont be discouraged by Douche king. There are a ton of guys on this sight who will help. And even more who will hate.
