This gal has done her homework...data central.
Thought I'd start fresh so it didn't get lost at the end of the other thread as this is quite an important topic.
I must also add that in the related thread, there was talk of one woman trying a new bike and not being able to touch the ground compared to her older bike of the same model. All new bikes soften up after awhile, suspension wise and even the seat, so don't automatically count one out if it seems "just" a tad too tall.
Give it time, or sit on a well used one....or get Mess to ride it for a week.
