Hey everyone, I'm looking to get my fiance a bike but we're having trouble finding the right size bike. She is 5'2" (157cm) and fits very comfortably on an XS frame. However after demoing a bike with 29" wheels she fell in love with the way it rode. I've been looking into brands that run small and it seems like the Santa Cruz/Juliana Hightower/Maverick might be the best bet right now. Anyone else know any mid travel 29ers that run small? For reference the size small Trek Fuel ex 8 was still way too tall for her to touch the ground with ease.

What kind of travel are you looking for? The small Ibis Ripley would fit her to a T. I'm 5'0" with a short inseam and find the standover is just a hair to big for me, but seems great for anyone 5'1" +. I would consider selling. It has less than 10 rides on it.

I was hoping for a mid travel, something around 130-140 rear travel would be ideal. Did you have a price in mind for your ripley?

Ibis touts the low standover on the Ripmo as well.
