    Liv Intrigue E+ 2020 for wife

    I want to get my wife a Liv Intrigue E+ Pro 1 for Christmas, but unsure what size to get her as she's in between sizes. She's a little over 5'5", and has about a 30" inseam. The small frame has a reach of 418mm, and the medium 431mm. The medium has a standover hight of 29.6" which may be getting a little tight for her.

    Should I get her a small? Or a medium and swap out the 50mm stem to 40mm?

    Check if the sizing is the same for the Embolden E+ and i'll have a try tonight/tomorrow when my wifes new bike arrives. She's 5'7" but my 11 year old is smaller, so we can compare the 2 between them and see if we can work out which.
    Based upon my knowledge as my lad has an Embolden in an S, i'd say the S is VERY small... I'd go medium at this stage of thoughts.

    Looks like the Embolden is a smaller bike. Small Embolden E+ has a reach of 410mm while the Intrigue E+ small is 418mm.

    I am 56 and ride a Specialized Levo. I much prefer the small as I can move the big around easier. I can easily test ride a medium but when the trail gets rowdy I want the small.

    Best thing is for her to test ride both to see which one is the better fit for her.
    Will swerve for leaves.
