    From the price, I imagine you're referring to the Myka FSR and not the hardtail, correct? Although I don't know much about the FSR model, my girlfriend has the 2009 Myka Elite hardtail, and I could give you a pretty good run down if you're looking at getting the hardtail version. Bike Radar offers a good review of the FSR version: http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/catego...-comp-09-34205

    I tried one when I was picking a bike and tbh it was a bit 'bland'. It went ok, it stopped ok, and the suspension was ok but it wasn't very involving. I also struggled with the sizing - I'm 5'6 and normal build - as the frame size and geometry put me in the wrong place. I'm really glad I got to sit on one as I had planned to just buy one unseen, and I can't explain how disappointed I would have been if I had ordered it and it had been 'my' bike.

    My wife has the '10 Comp and it works nicely for her. Spec'd very similar to the '09.

    She's 5'2" on a small and standover and geo are geared for shorter legs and reach. The Le Femme fork is pretty soft but for a lady's weight it is okay and can be easily changed with another coil.

    She thinks it's pretty comfy for longer rides....decent saddle.

    I like the quality and components for the intended use.

    I guess it depends on how serious a rider your wife is. Mine is more a of casual flat trail/path rider but likes some zippy downhill. Obviously, the Safire or even the Era are more suited to serious riders.

    Thanks Malibu....we actually found a 2008 Stumpy FSR in Medium that fits her well. I wouldn't have thought her at 5'4"-5'-5" fitting on a medium...she does and for the asking price $1300 like new condition. I think we found her a bike.
