Extra small frame for the wife
The wife obviously didnt eat her greens as a youngster and sorting out a small mtb frame has proved tricky. She has a Santa Cruz Julianna in a size 12 inch centre to top. Now she has ‘decided’ to wanting a a singlespeed for a second bike and finding a frame with the same sort of size is proving quite tricky. Anyone have any ideas on what to get. Women specific maybe beneficial as she has stumpy arms too.Posted 4 years ago
Morning all, the wife is 5 ft 1 in slippers. We have a Merlin 14 inch frame coverted to singlespeed, which she has used for a few years to work, but has always been too big for her and heavy, so she wants a lighter singlespeed to go to her new job she has started recently along the towpaths and canals , which will be a 10 mile trip. I did look at your bike piccie the other day, beckykirk, but wondered about top tube length. Lets put it this way, with her 12 inch Julianna on the turbo trainer, she cant get her leg over it to get on.Posted 4 years agoannacipulloMember
I have a Rocky Mountain Vertex for sale, either frame or as a complete bike. Geometry can be found here:
It comes in a snazy limited paint job (as per the link) and is women’s specific. With a TT of 525cm it is definitely for the shorty or stumpy-armed! 😉
If you want the complete bike, I’m selling it for £600. It’s a heavily upgraded version of what’s in the above link though, it has DT Swiss forks, XTR rear/XT cranks and shifters, Ritchey seatpost and carbon handlebars, Formula Oro brakes and Hope hubs with Mavic rims. The whole thing weighs less that 24lbs. If you just want the frame and some bits, make me an offer.
Let me know if you’re interested or want some photos.
Happy hunting!Posted 4 years ago
I’ve got an Ellsworth Specialist up on eBay if that’s any good?Posted 4 years ago
