    Giant Tempt WSD...

    Looking at this bike for my daughter for Christmas. She is right at 5 ft tall. Didn't realize until last night this bike is 27.5. Anyone riding this bike or something similar yet? Just curious about 27.5 and shorter riders.

    The whole Giant WSD range this year seems to be 27.5. I'm not short but have been riding a 27.5 bike for years. They suit me and I love the playful feel they retain while offering some extra rollover from a 26.

    The wheel size as ever is personal preference and not really related to height although IMHO small size frames with 29 wheels look plain wrong and looks matter to me as shallow as that sounds.
    All the Giant bikes for women this year look fantastic and they have been designed from the ground up and I'm sure ride fantastically. I have test ridden the Lust ..it's stunning and may be the first WSD I am tempted by although they are only making it up to size M so I may be out of luck.

    The Tempt would be a great option to consider.

    I'm a bit of a newbie.. But I just for the giant Tempt 0 two weeks ago. I LOVE it. I am 5'3" mad have the small frame. I feel like this bike was built for me. I demo'd some 29ers and some 26ers. The 29er felt like too cumbersome and the 26er just felt off..can't explain why..just was not comfortable in the geometry of the bike. I love my tempt. I think it would be a great choice for your daughter.
