    I am looking for size SMALL Podium or Chilcotin in Western Washington

    Hey folks,
    I thought I would throw this out there. I was wondering if any of you knew someone near to Seattle, or at least Western Washington, that has a Small Podium or Chilcotin built up. Preferably with a short 35-40mm stem.

    I am looking for a bike to demo for a potential team rider. She currently owns a Scratch with a 372mm reach (+50mm stem), which is a bit big for her. Since the reach on the Podium (382mm) and Chilcotin (395mm) is even longer than that, she would need to ride one to see if it would be a good fit. The standover of the Scratch is 790mm, which would be much improved with the Podium (723mm) or Chilcotin (719mm). She would likely feel more comfortable on the bike, but the reach seems to be the tricky part, and frankly, I am worried it will be too big. It looks like we could get a 28mm stem for the dual crown fork, which would help, but apart from that I think she really needs to demo one.

    She will be in the area first week of January, and can travel to Bellingham, or south, if needed. (or even BC)

    Thanks for any help,

    Muttonchops has a medium...if that's too big she needs a small.

    How tall is she?

    My wife has a small first generation Podium that she runs a Totem on. Doubt that will be much help to you, as I am not sure how much the geo changed in the second generation but we are in Vancouver, BC.

    She is 5'1" with short arms.

    EB- thanks that sounds good. I didn't realize you were on a small. Ill bring a shorter stem and we can switch that out. How long are your cranks, and bars? Would be great to ride with you again, I'll let you know when but tentatively Sat Jan 4th? I'll text ahead of time for a reminder.

    thanks

    Bars are 29.5" I believe. Cranks are 175mm XO's with dual rings.
