My wife is 5ft 4in and weighs 110 lbs and currently has a 2008 Safire Medium frame. I know it weighs 27 lbs. I could get her a barely used 2010 Stumpjumper Pro Carbon that weighs 26 lbs. The question I have for you guys is she wants to have a bike for racing and one for smooth technical trail riding as well. I was thinking of her keeping her Safire and just getting a used Epic Carbon or S-works if I can afford it or getting her this Pro Carbon and she can have the best of both worlds. My question is how much of a difference will it be for her on the carbon Pro then her Safire now in racing and then how much better would it be if she gets an Epic even if it is not a fully loaded S-works. Thanks for any opinions...
