Looks nice. What's wrong with her Yetti, surely that's not too heavy for XC is it? What's she riding tomorrow?

Is it the satanding on the pedals position that gives her back pain? If so a full suss of any sort will definitely solve the problem.

That Kona looks great. Which is quite something considering the ugly bikes Kona knocked out for a number of years! If she doesnt need the female specific Merlin Cycles have some good deals on Kona.

yep she will be riding the yeti to see if its easyer on the back, the yeti is great and light but is a 140 front 130 back and set up more as a trail bike finding it makes it harder and slower on the flater stuff. Also i find having two bikes means you always have something working to ride and this one would be a mud pluging ride it to destuction bike leaving the yeti for best ;D.

Thanks for the Merlin link but on cheeking it out seams the suspension has changed for the better from the 2010 to the 2011 were looking at also sizing of the women’s in these on paper look better for Laura (don’t think she will go for the poo brown one ether) As for back pain it doesn’t come on until later in the day or the next morning so difficult to tell if its worsened from sitting or standing pedalling Undecided. Thanks for the advise much appreciated.
