    anyone riding a small frame 7point5

    i'm thinking about picking one up...not sure on size though and may not be able to test ride either. i'm 5 foot 7 inches...i was leaning to small but maybe that will be too cramped

    any advice appreciated

    I am happy with my small size 7point for easy handling with a 40mm short stem.
    near same height 5'7-8", 145lb, ride most up and down trail.

    The 3-ways progressive is okay but to less thread on body to fit my ti spring .
    Switched to 6-ways + 300lb spring with SPV 75lb, now drive the shock to 85% travel on 3ft jump.
