I am 5'5 and ride my mountain bike about twice a week on singletrack. I looked at and tested GT, Giant, Schwinn, and Klein bikes. Most of the bikes that the local bike shops had in stock were too large for me and my riding style. I like a bike that gives me plenty of top tube clearance and alows me to easily reach the handlebars. The GiantATX 875 met my needs. Although it is marketed as a women's bike, I found it very comfrotable for my size. I requsested a couple of upgrades to my 1996 bike such as 8 speed rear cassette, Ritchey tires and x-ray grip shifters. The bike is light, lively and looks great with its oversized tubes and compact frame.

Got the 875 for my 5'2 wife who had been struggling on a heavy, steel mens bike that was unsuspended and far too large for her. Immediately upon switching to the 875 she found she was quiker and more agile off road and that she had far more confidence and control in more extreme riding conditions. Luckily the 875 fit as well as it did it is the only aluminum, suspended bike made with women in mind. It is my opinion that women riders desire and deserve bikes every bit as good as men. In the 90's we now have the maturity and wisdom to aknowledge the fact that women and men are not the same. She is very satisfied with the 875, it's easily one of the nicest frames in the industry. It's only drawbacks are the brakes and the Quad 5 shock which, while solid and adequate, is no longer the standard. Also, she found the Womens' talibones saddle from Serfas better than the OEM.

My girlfriend owns one of these babies. She used to get a sore back on her
old bike, as well as sore legs, arms shoulders etc., but on the ATX 875,
everything is sweet. It's specially designed for WOMEN. The top tube is
nice and short - allowing for a shorter torso. The seat stays are bent to
make up for the small front triangle. The bar is narrow - to allow for the
narrower shoulders of Women. Otherwise it's the same as the ATX 870 - ie:
STX drive train, and brakes, and SRT 400 GS. The brakes have a little to be
desired, but everything else runs smoothly. It's about time the MTB
manufacturers acknowledged the presence of women in this sport. I'm no
feminist, but according to the numbers, more women ride bikes than men do,
so it's in the companies' interests to accomodate them. This bike is a little
for me, but it's great for burning around town. I saw a tricked out one
recently - with shocks, syncros bits, and full XT, and it looked way cool.
So for all you women out there struggeling on some guys bike, do yourself
a favour, and get one of these.

It's actually my girlfriend who owns one of these babies. It's basically
the same as the ATX 870, but the aluminium frame has been specifically
designed for WOMEN. My girlfriend used to hate riding because she got a
sore back, shoulders and arms. But since she's been riding this, everyhting
is sweet, we don't even fight anymore!! Anyway, the top tube is much shorter
than a men's bike, which allows for a woman's shorter torso and arms. The
seat stays have been bent to allow for longer chain stays, without loosing
out on the strength of the rear triangle-go and look at one, and you'll see
what I mean. The handle bar is narrower, to allow for narrower shoulders.
It's mainly equipped with STX. The drive train is fine - the grip shift
works well when adjusted properly, but the brakes have a little to be
desired. Brake boosters would probably help. It really is a fantastic bike,
all the girls, and even some guys, who've had a ride, want one. I recomend
this bike to any woman struggeling because she has to ride a guys frame.
It makes sense for the bike manufacturers to be making women's frames
because according to some statistics I've seen, there are many more women
riding bikes than men. Fitted out with some shocks, and this bike is race
ready.
