Road bikes in your size will show 1.5 to 2x the amount of space shown at the back of the head tube. Of course this will always vary according to the geometry and proportions of a given frame, but it will at least give you a rough idea when perusing ads that don't give any dimensions.
Hmm.. I see. Just found a Rockhopper that looks to be in good condition and that looks to be that size. Will try to get it test ridden soon.
