I am 5'6" - 30" inseam - Does anyone know if I would need a 16" or 17" Voodoo Dambala?
According to my calcs, the 17" has a 2mm shorter wheelbase, 6mm longer front centre and 7mm longer reach. 17 handles quicker though.
With the seat adjusted for you, it will be very hard to notice the fit difference between the 2 of them. It's just slightly below a typical half frame size difference.
The 14" has only 1mm less reach than the 16", 8mm more front centre than even the 17" (same FC as the 21", actually) and a bit slower handling still than the 16.

Base choice on what you want from a bit, the 16 and 17 are a bit different bikes..
