    29er build for my wife

    We are currently in the cue for an Inglis SS 29er for my wife. The frame should be built sometime in the next few weeks. I have most of the build picked out, but what would you do with an open budget? Or, what would you do to keep it under 5K?

    Wheels and hubs are are the biggest variable at this point.

    She is small at 5'1" 100 lbs so I have asked for custom geometry from Curtis Inglis - we are 90 miles from him at Napa so travel is no problem.

    If you were in my shoes, what would you do (build)?

    First, I have to ask. Does she like riding 29ers, versus say, 26" or 650b? Just curious.

    Hoping for wheel/hub recommendations

    I was hoping for wheel/hub recommendations - maybe not clear from the post. She rides a Ventana 26" X-5, but we met a guy on a ride who had an Inglis 29er SS and let us ride it. The bike was closer to her size than mine (S vs.L) , but we were very impressed with it and she liked it enough for us to order one.
