    DB recoil for wifes first fs?

    So I picked up a db recoil for a starter fs bike for my wife. I had it shipped up to NC so have not had a chance to look at it. How is this for a first fs bike for my wife. She will ride mostly xc stuff and a little all mountain. It was actually a wedding gift so I could not be too picky as it was not my money. It will be ridden in NC and once we get back in shape I want to get us better bikes for more all mountain to free ride stuff.

    If she is on the light side it should work well. Dont worry to much about upgrades though, just replace as things wear out. Probably want to put decent pedals on right away.

    Thats what I ride and I love it. My wife is short 5'2" so she doesnt get along too well with my 18" frame but from time to time she messes around on the bike and she enjoys it
