I live in the prairies. It's pretty damn flat here. So the Giant Anthem (Anthem 2, in my price range) makes for a fantastic Mountain Bike. Being a 5'7" 121 lb female, I also like it's lightness.
Question: If I were to ever be taking it out west to the Rockies for a week or something, will the 3'5" severely hamper me? I'm not much for daredevil riding, and with my size, was hoping I'd be able to get away with the Anthem being my only Mountain Bike. Thoughts?
(Note: I'm a roadie with a very heavy Trek 820 hardtail.)
