Well wife loves how the Giant Cyphers look such as the 2011 and the 2012 trance x1 w. Problem being is she does not have a chance to try them out before we buy. She is 5'5 with a 30" inseam without shoes and with shoes you add a inch or so. I found a medium 2011 cypher 2 for 1500 in Sierra Vista and owner said they would ship the bike. I own a 2011 Giant reign that is slightly larger than the cypher and wife feels it is a tad too large for stand over.the specs for my reign are
HA, SA TT HT CS WB Standover
M 67.50 73.50 23.20 5.00 17.20 44.50 31.90
and the cypher
M/18 69.50 73.50 22.24 5.90 17.10 42.80 31.80
2012 trance x w
M/18 69.5 73.5 22.2 5.9 17.1 42.8 29.1
Of course the trance x w will be 2k or above, so which way to? Would she need a small or would a medium work?
