    something second hand off here, hardtail.
    Or a frame from On-one / Merlin / etc. for ~150.
    Don’t limit to WSD. 2 of my daughters (11 and 13) ride mens – one a Giant XTC team and one a scott scale.
    They seem to fit really well.

    If I bought her another hardtail she’d have to stand up more on the descents. That FS has ruined her technique 😉 2nd Hand was what I was thinking based on the amount of riding we do and any minute now she might just go all teenager and not interested in bikes anymore on me. Like my 14 year old 😉

    Reckon she’d be okay on a Small now for most makes. or maybe an XS. Have to get her to sit on a few in the bike shop.

    Hi, is this of any interest to you?

    My 15 year old son who is 5’10” is just out grown it.

    My 12 year old daughter is now 1m68. She’s fast outgrowing this:

    which I built about this time last year. Most of the stuff (not forks they’re very, very old!) I’d like to transfer to something a bit bigger. But can you get frame only small-ish Women’s specific deals? Not sure if to go for HT or FS either. We probably ride 15-20 times a year when the weather is nice mainly in local woods or easy trails in the FoD.

    Any ideas on what might be a good next bike? She’s not finished growing yet either!
