    The only true way to tell for sure is TRY B4 you BUY. You should be able to comfortably stand over the bike flat footed with about 2" of clearance on a mountain bike. All indications from sizing charts do indicate that this is the correct size though. Bike frames are NOT universal in size. They vary slightly from one company to the next in stand-over height.

    From your first set of specs, sounds as if you are ordering via the Internet from a discount store. Bad choice.

    Those measurements don't mean anything as far as frame size goes

    18" or 19" is probably right for you. You need to try it out for yourself.
