2012 Kahuna Deluxe 29er Sizing

I am looking at ordering your 2012 Kona Kahuna Deluxe 29er online and I am not sure of the correct size to order. I have read that the Kona can seem to be sized a bit funny. I really want to order a Kona but the only option in Ireland is online so can't demo in store.

I am Average size I guess, measurements below.

1750mm (70 inches or 5' 9") tall,
780mm (31.2 inch) inside leg
700mm (28 inch) torso,
575mm (23 inch) reach
82kg (182lbs) weight.

Please can you advise if you think the 18 inch Kona Kahuna Deluxe 29er will be ok? I would perfer to be on the bigger side rather than the bike feel small. I did find one formula that said I should get a 16inch but that seems very small?

My current old heap is Clause Butler Rock due to two decent bikes getting stolen, it has a SO height of 32.8 inches and a TTH of about 22.4

Kind Regards

The 18" will feel big. I'm 2" taller than you with longer legs and that's the size I like best but then I like a smaller fit so I can be on top of the bike in technical trails.

Any chance you can try any of the Kahunas? The fit will be the same , other than maybe a stem or so.

I know this is an old post.
Fitz Cycles in Dublin have them in stock, I got my Kahuna DL there. The service there was really good so i dont mind recommending them.
