I saw a BIKE magazine review on the 2014 models where they suggested possibly going up to a larger size on those, as they found the cockpit felt short for 5'11 riders on the 18.5". I dunno, I tend to like my bikes on the small side; I feel they're more fun to try to throw around. A 19.5" might work for you; see if you can throw a leg over it. Looks like a fun ride to me. I'm thinking there'll be a number of people of the opinion you might prefer bigger wheels; they may well be right. Depends a lot on your local trails and riding style., etc. A little test riding will give you a better idea what feels right to you.
