Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to be more patient and keep my options open. I am sticking with a mens bike though because you're right, I won't be wearing a dress on any trails! Thanks :)

Thanks for the replies! The bike ended up being 17", not 16", which was far too big for me. So I'm still looking, but I think I'm going to expand my search to other frames.
