Mountain Biking - XC Race Bike suggestions for Shorter Rider

My sister is doing some xc races with her high school team. Right now she has a specialized hardrock, but it is heavy. I would like to get some suggestions for a hardtail in the 1k range, most likely used. She is 4'9" and rides bikes with 67cm/26" standover height so sizing can be difficult. She has shorter legs/longer torso, so female geometry is not a requirement. Anybody have any recommendations?

santa cruz makes x small bikes, and the julana is a really sweet bike. also rocky mountain makes a great bike that would fit her. oh, and it's pretty cool you specified leg/torso length, that is good info to know. good luck.

Giant XTC in XXS is a very solid, light frame, for a petite gal.
