In my english I have a 16.5 and it is perfect size for me, I have no trouble, but for 17 people tell my saddle is to big so I will go with 16.5, I am like 5'2 with I think a 26 waist, but not sure. I were a 12/14 in kids so I don't know if that helps. I have been looking on ebay
and found some good ones so I hope to find other good deals!
