    2015 Liv Lust 3 vs 2015 Juliana Origin

    Looking to upgrade my wife's bike. She is 5'1" and is currently on a xs 2010 fuji outland pro 26in bike with slx components. We ride a lot of xc but want someting comfortable for her if we get into rougher stuff. I have had 3 anthems over the years and recently picked up a Santa Cruz 5010. I've been looking at some bikes and have narrowed it down to these two models. The liv intrigue or a 2016 lust 2 are other possibilities if we stretch our budget, but Im trying to stay in the $2000 and under price range. What do you think? Anybody know the weights of these bikes? Which climbs better, which has a smoother ride? Thanks!

    Don't know a thing about those two bikes but I have helped several women get Into singletrack riding.

    I stayed In touch with all of them,,five so far and The biggest single factor for all of these new riders was bike weight..

    A 200 pound man on a 30 pound bike.. bike is 15% of the mans weight.
    A 130 pound woman on a 30 pound bike bike is 23% of her weight,,,

    Just sayin'~
