    What to buy??

    So, my wife is looking for a new ride. She's been on a Salsa Beargrease with Bluto shock but, the bike is too big for her (she wants a light weight bike and, she loves the front shock -she weighs about 115lb). I don't want to break the bank but, if momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy. What do folks suggest for something light, fun, reliable and not super pricey?
    Thanks!!
    Mike

    Canyon Dude 9.0 SL? Definitely light, has the bluto fork too. Good price at the moment but depends where you are in the world as to whether you can buy them

    Wozo:

    Fun? check.
    Low standover, Med/Small? check.
    Inexpensive? check.
    Reliable? check.

    The Beargrease is a lightweight and fairly priced bike, can she fit a small frame for standover and run a longer post and stem?

    I prefer used, esp when it's a common bike like the Beargrease.

    Not at the extreme short chainstays of the Wozo but should give it a run for the money in lightness, the BD Titanium Night Train. For the same price or $100 less than the Wozo, depending on where you shop.
