I'm building a new bike for my 13yr old girl. She's 5'1" and a pretty strong rider but has outgrown her old bike.
Any way I now have two frames in the garage for her - one must go!
... small, steel OnOne 456 frame which looks the dogs but weighs 4.5lbs
... small, Alu Giant XTC SE frame. It's a bit more generic looking but has the advantage of being a full pound lighter than the 456
What do you reckon for hilly XC riding around the Malverns? The lighter Giant or the cooler 456?
