I went to pick up a mountain bike and although it was apparently sized correctly (18" frame and I'm 5' 9") it seemed big. I know nothing about bikes but assumed a small frame would be required to make it more 'chuckable''. I could only just get both feet flat on the ground when straddling the crossbar. What are the pros and cons of a small bike frame? Should I just go with the size chart? Do some people prefer a smaller frame for the reasons I've given or am I being daft? I'll probably mostly be off road on hilly terrain
