    Need Help Picking out Wife's Bike!!

    Wife (who is short, 5 foot 2) will be new to mountain biking and she is not very confident on a bike. Most riding will be on paved trails to/from places in our community (like going out to eat). But we also live near some fairly flat trails (Houston area) that I would like her to go on that will be offroad. Trying to decide between a XS frame (13") 29er, a traditional 26" small frame, or....get like a 26" dirt jumping bike with gears (would be small enough for her, but good for me too!). Thoughts?! Thanks for the help!

    Re: Need Help Picking out Wife's Bike!!

    Have her test ride some and see what she likes. I'm 5'3 and ride a Jamis Dakar XC Comp. My partner rides a Fuel EX 8. Have a friend who is 5'1 and rides a 29er. We also live in Houston.
