a while ago, I borrowed this from her for a road ride. All I had to do was raise the seat height about 1" (I'm 6-1 with a 34" inseam).
So we did some measuring, and even though she is 5-8, her inseam is less than an inch shorter than mine!! All the difference is in the hips/torso. Do to shorter torso, she'd probably be "perfect" on a 54 or 56cm endurance geometry type bike, but she has been very comfortable the last 2 months on this, so cant be too picky when shopping used bikes.
On another note, that ride I took made me really want a carbon bike, so as of a few days ago, I own a slightly used 2013 SuperSix Evo SRAM Red!
