As i've done some fairly extensive searching & still looking for opinions.
It's time for my wife to get a new bike. As a background, she rides and races DH, and has used a medium Blur 4X as a trail bike, which is a little on the small side for her (bear in mind they are tiny though!).
She is 5'7" with a 32" inseam, and looking at the above as her new trailbike. Normal trails, bike will be built as a 2x10, Reverb & a 140mm fork, 50mm stem & wide bars, will be raced from all angles of XC for a bit of fun/fitness, to Gravity Enduro series, right up to the Megavalanche next year.
The size guides are pretty crazy on the Yeti website, everything is fine, apart from the seatube height confuses me. I noticed the only differences between the small & medium is 0.3" on the seatube height and 1" on the top tube.
I 'think' the size of the medium would suit her better except the seat tube height worries me, as i'm concerned with her height if she will be able to get full extension on the Reverb (even with the knuckle slammed as low as it will go into the seatube?)
Any thoughts? We have looked at the 575 as well, but it seems the bike would be that little bit too much for 90% of the riding the bike will be used for.
