The Haro sizing doesn't match allot of other mfg sizing. My 2010 Mary SS 18 "sizes out the same as my Surly Pugsley (Large frame). The 20" would have me layed over and an improper knee to pedal relationship. Measure your current ride in the important areas and go from there.. PS also remember that the cranks on the 18-20" frames have the 180 MM length, compaired to the normal 175mm.

Standover on the 20" Mary is 33" (~83cm). For your height (~5'10"-5'11") I think the 20" Mary is too large. You may be able to make some adjustments with the EBB and maybe a shorter stem, but I'd opt for a properly sized frame if I was buying a new one.

Ok, hopefully the 18'' won't be too small for me.

I don't think it's going to be too big. Just buy it!
