    Fuel ex9 stand over height

    I ordered a fuel EX 9 26er in a small. I am 5'4" female. They didn't have a small anywhere in the state, so I had to order it. I rode a medium, but the stand over height was too tall. According to the trek website, the stand over height is taller on the small than the medium and even the large. Is this possible? I'm supposed to pick up the bike tomorrow. I'm concerned that I'm not going to have enough stand over height. Is there anyone out there who is 5'4" who has this bike in a small? Do you have any problems with stand over height! Thanks!

    Re: Fuel ex9 stand over height

    I can't help a whole lot as the bikes vary slightly, but my girlfriend has an 09 fisher piranha in a 15.5" frame size and is your height. I apologize, but I can't seem to find the actual geometry specs for that 26" g2 frame, but I do know she has been on a fuel ex6 and a top fuel at one point of the same size and she was quite comfortable with both of them. Her inseam is 27/28" fwiw. The fuel was 120mm travel for sure, I am unsure how much they vary to the 13/14 130mm travel frames, but I suspect not much.
    I hope it all works out for you!
