I know its a 15.5'' frame, but how do you know what the sandover height is?

Im only 5'2'' and I dont know if 15.5 will be too big.

thanks!!
It is almost certain that the 15.5 is too big - not only standover height but the whole geometry. Even if you decided to live with the standover, the bike would be hard for you to maneuver. I'm 5'11" with the 17.5" frame & it fits me just right - very responsive on the trail. My daughter is 5'2" & I found a Jamis hardtail in a 13.5" frame that fits her just right. If you're not sure, you are better off buying at an LBS where you can try it on for size.

I would say it should fit fairly well actually. The RS site says the 15.5's top tube is 21.8, which I would recommend for someone five one to five five. I'm five six and my Azure's 22.5" top tube fits perfectly (though I'm a racer and like to be spread out). Maybe the RS site's geo numbers are wrong, but if it's right, I would suggest the 15.5 size bike.
