Default GNU Park Pickle question

For someone 5'9" and 180lbs who does 50% park 50% freeriding, would a park pickle 159cm be a good size?

I would probably go a little shorter. I have been doing lots of free riding around on a 153 this year and it has been going just fine. Maybe shoot for the 156 I think it is.

I'm 5'11 165lbs and I ride a 156 just because I do hit groomers just as much as I hit the park. If I were more park oriented then I would went with something shorter like a 153.

Ok i called up the shop, they have no 156.

Will the 159 do just fine? Is the difference between 156 and 159 for my use tiny and a good comprmise or should i get another one?


I'd like to add that i just do jumps and some buttering, im not into jibbing. But i do even more freeriding.
