Hi all
I am a rider who likes to climb more than descend and when I dod descend I cruise. I really like single track high alpine trails and my local trails are fun flowy single track with tree roots and rocks.
I am 5 ft nothing and currently riding a Specialized Camber 650B WSD in an XS. I LOVE it but my 10-year old daughter (in my profile pic she is about 3!) has hijacked it so she is getting it if I find a nice replacement (yes lucky girl!)
I am looking at the Trek Fuel XE in either the 7 or 8 and either XS or SM sizes. I would normally always buy an XS but the idea of 29" wheels intrigue me. Will they help me with my climbing and rolling over things?
Anyone here switch over and happy/sad they did?
I would also be curious on opinions given my riding style whether I really need the 8 or if the 7 would do.
Thank you all!
Anita

In case anyone is still interested in this question they should ask Greame's wife how she feels about her new bike; she just got one!
