Medium fit great! So I picked up the Kona Honzo AL/DL in medium.  Also had Matt & Veronica throw on a set of RaceFace Atlas pedals, and had them convert to tubeless setup. Thanks...

Hello, I'm 5'6 1/2" :) and decided on the Kona Honzo AL/DL.  It seems I'm right in between a medium or small.  Which would be the better choice? Thank you!

Well, after test riding a few H/T's & F/S's at the LBS, I decided on a 2017 Santa Cruz 5010 27.5 demo.  Pretty sweet deal.  It was only ridden on one trail...
