On my 58 cm Jake, it's 58 cm c-t-t (center to top of seat tube). Because it has a sloping top tube, it's actually much shorter measured c-t-c (center to center of top tube). I recall (don't have the bike here in front of me) the c-t-c measurement is something like 54, and the center to top of top tube measurement is somewhere near 55.5 cm. Anyway, it's a (relatively) long way down from the seat collar to the top tube.

By the way, on my 58 cm Jake, top tube length is an even 57.0 cm, based on a horizontal line from the center of the seat collar to the center of the top of the head/steerer tube (just like Kona measures all of their top tubes, I think).

Hope this helps!
