    Interesting. Never looked at this. I'm 5'2 and my women's road bike fits fine, but as I mentioned before, I ride a unisex mountain bike. Tried two women's mountain bikes and both fit awkwardly.

    It's a geometry thing. If she has long legs and a short torso, she might be happier on a women's specific bike. But not every woman fits better on a women's bike...Specialized's women's bikes fit me...

    If you're dropping the money on a $6000 bike, you owe it to yourself to test ride them and figure out the sizing that way. I'm assuming you're 167cm, because if you were 167mm you'd be about 6 inches...

    Nice find. That's when Specialized was using those those cool overbuilt frames on their Hardrocks too. Have fun and post up pictures!

    Yetis on one bike, Ruffians on the others. They're thin grips though, so not a lot of damping. Rogue probably offers more damping, but is a thicker grip and my hands are small.

    I stay away from Ergons and other ergonomic grips. Had a bike with ergonomic grips on them once and they were terrible. I hated that they were clearly meant for your hands to be in a certain...

    Both solid bikes. Try them both and see which one's geometry suits your body better and feel like it rides better to you. If they both feel the same, then Fox/Shimano or RockShox/SRAM/Magura? Either...

    Kind of hard to translate sizing like that. My full-suspension and hardtail are both regular old 26" non-fat bikes, and there's a 3" difference in frame size between them just due to differences in...

    Never heard of Hero either.

    Now Haro, on the other hand...in the 80s, those were THE BMX bikes to have!

    To the OP, you're comparing a step-through hybrid to a mountain bike. What kind of riding...

    60/40?!?! I am not going to attempt to guess at a percent, but there's no way you can attribute 40% to the bike. However, I'd propose that along with the type of riding, the skill of the rider makes...
