Looks to have a massively long headtube though (looks like 130mm +), which on a 29er results in bars that are too high for a decent riding position, unless you use flat bars and a negative rise stem.

my wife was abiker before we met, reason why we got together, she has sadly been off the bike a bit to mch since our 2 kids but said she is realistically not into epic mountain biking anymore and more into nice lanes and bridelways and family trails with the kids in the forests, which i guess is ok as i am now riding a 150mm freeride bike at cwmcarn etc and she had a rigid 1996 GT.
thought this was a good compromise between a hybrid commuter as she rides to the train station twice a week and a MTB.[/list]
