I have the chance to get a Trek 4300 that is only a month old for a good price. I am 6' and it is a 19.5" frame. Is this frame size okay for me or do I need something smaller. I have not really had a chance to go test out many yet.

I have a 4900 with the 19.5 frame and I am 6'1". The bike fits nice. You may just need some minor adjustments such as the seat height.

In Trek sizing, I'm supposed to ride a medium (17.5), but I feel most comfortable on a large (19.5).
I run a short stem, and the large fits nicely. On a medium, I run a slightly longer stem than stock, and have the seat slid all the way back, and it still feels a little small.

My LBS tried in vain to get me on an 17.5", my old 18" 4300 felt just too small. I bought the 19" fuel90 thinking I could get shorter stem if need be, but need be not! I do pretty well in local racing running stock setup...
Ride what feels right though, it all depends on yer riding style- I wouldn't want to do any tricks/ jumps on the 19"...
