Hello,

By hook or by crook I'm going to get my better half out on two wheels. She has a town bike and loves it. Next stage is to take her off road and show her some mud.

Anyone looking to shift an 18" hard tail (she's 5'5") - decent spec of kit £500 - £600 range?

Pls drop my a PM with images.

Cheers,
JT

isn't 18" a bit big for a 5'5" rider?

You think 16 / 17" would suit her better?

Got a 17" Specialized Stumpjumper full suspension that my wife is looking to move on.

I'll have a close look at it tonight and post some spec. I can't recall all the parts but it has been upgraded.....can do photos etc.

later

Hi, Selling my 2011 On - One Scandal in 16" mostly XTR, 2012 FSA wheels, tubeless TT Larsons, Thomson, Flight, recently serviced Revelations, Race Face, SPD's very very light and in condition 9/10 throughout. Low dry miles only. I can fit either riser bars or flats with bar ends. Also if she doesn't like SPD's I have some MG1 flatties. Selling as I have just bought a 29er race bike. How about £575 PP including insured,tracked shipping to UK? Pics and more details/history on request.
