    That's a tough one, very long legs for your height. I'd say 17" with a very short stem, or 17"/15" semi custom (17" seat-tube w/ top tube length from the 15").

    Yeah, they can do anything you want, obviously the more extensive you get with changes the more money it is though.

    By 'aggressive' what do you mean? You attack the uphills or downhills?
    Racer guy, or All Mountain type of rider?

    female trail rider. current ride is an intense tracer. love the tracer but looking for more travel, slacker geometry. i'm pretty lightweight so dont want a big heavy bike. also want something that has decent suspension system. also looking at turner. i like the titus motolite as well but small size has such a short seat-tube and mediums top tube is too long for me.
