    Medium Racer X for 5'2" woman?

    Is there any way possible to get a 5'2" woman of average proportions comfortable on a medium Racer X? The sizing charts make it seem way too big, but I wanted to check and see because I can get one for next to nothing so I would be willing to change out stem, cranks, etc.

    No way...just finishing my Racer X Medium and I am 5'-9" with 32" inseam and I think I just barely fit and that's with a 90mm stem. Just buy the medium and sell it or find a trade partner. Mediums should sell well on the used market since its the most common size

    I'm 5' 8 and its a little big for me but rideable of course.I run a 70mm stem to help.

    Negative but...

    My good friend is unloading her 08 Racer X frame and F100 (both have minimal use) in order to get a small Motolite or FTM.

    Email bob@bikerbob for her details.

    As said before not a chance. You are in x-small territory there. My wife is 5' 5" and rides a small titus.

    I'm 5'3" with a 29" inseam and fit on a small Racer X with the Fox F80 RLC fork.
    If I remember correctly there are 2 sets of dimensions for either the 80 or 100 fork.
    I can't imagine fitting on the medium. l

    +1 on the M not working. My wife rides a small Racer-X at 5'4". No way she would ever fit a M frame.

    Thanks for the input, and cool pics bert. Was hoping to make it work but defintiely a no-go. We ended up going with a different bike for her.

    I'm thinking the medium would have been good for me at 5'10". Just didn't need another XC bike
