Kona Blast 17" HT
100mm Travel
5'7-8'' (not exactly too sure) with a 28-29 inside leg.
No Clearance whatsoever in bare feet

However, I have tried smaller frames in the past and the riding positions feel really cramped, particularly the difference between seat and handlebars.

Is this thread still relevant? Didn't think standover mattered these days.
