    Very samll FS?

    I'm trying to find a frame builder who can produce a very small FS frame with 4" rear travel. It needs to have a standover height of less than 23" and if possible a straight top tube. Cost is not too much of an issue. Your sugestions please...

    Good luck with your search sorted, i think its going to be a tricky one theres, the closest i could find on a quick look was a titus racer x but its got 24.65 standover and a sloping tt.
    can't vicious or sycip create a one off custom for you?

    We're on the case

    Titus has been ruled out because of the fit.

    SyCip we're talking to them...

    Vicious has a bent top tube. However, if needs must then it may be the only option.

    Unless anyone else has any more suggestions.

    Yeti AS-Rsl

    Yeti AS-Rsl. Available in size XS. I just ordered one for my wife and it should be in by the end of January. It does have a sloped/angled top tube. A tad less than 4 inches of travel. Wicked light. Sweet new paint schemes.

    Then again, the standover height just ruled that one out...

    Wife= 5'1"
    Inseam=29ish
    TT=21ish
    BIKE=Intense XVP and EVP 5.5, she owns BOTH one setup for XC other for AM
    we ruled out Titus as they are single pivots, and the

    Blur XC XS and Truth XS were too small for her liking, they have TT that are like 20"

    but thos are the options, and yes the Yeti's come in an XS but cost alot just like the Seven's. Too bad no one makes a 6" bike thats for small people

    getting a DH rigg for her aint easy either

    What about a Dean Baja or Ace? A small Ti frame at a discounted price. These are even in stock and could probably ship fairly soon. The TT may be a bit long but it's worth a look.

    Why would I need more than one gear?

    I'd also drop a phone call to Sherwood at Ventana (www.ventanausa.com). I know he can do custom geometry and the like, so a small frame is likely.

    Good luck,
