    who makes Al squish?

    I'm looking for a new bike for my wife. Who makes an Aluminum full suspension 29er? Looking for something light and not too expensive as she doesn't ride a lot.
    Thanks for any info.

    The Kona Hei Hei 2-9 is one of the best full sus 29ers on the market, IMO. I'd bet there are screaming deals to be had on '08s if you can find one, and good deals on '09s once the '10s hit the shops later this year.

    If you can chase them down, try a Van Dessel Jersey Devil FS. I love mine.

    Could check out the Fuji FS 29'er(Outland 29 RC) too. Aluminum and fairly lightweight for a FS 29er - the medium(large by most companies standards-19" seat tube) came in at 28.6 w/ heavy cb mallet pedals.

    The Fuji, Van Dessel, KHS, Voodoo and Fisher are probably the 29er FS bikes that have lower price spec available. A lot of the others mentioned have frame only prices as high as some of the these brands lower spec'd ride.

    How tall is she? You could try to find a used GF Caliber29 or Supercaliber29 that would probably be perfect and can be found on ebay at good prices.

    She's 5'10" so not really limited for selection. I was thinking of checking out ebay for some good used bikes. If I don't find something locally, I'll probably go that route. Thanks!
