I'm looking for a quiver killer for my wife. She's 5'3" and currently rides a SC Blur LT. She love the Blur but I was thinking a 650b would make a huge difference. She is very accomplished on the bike and can ride just about any trail without trouble except for major DH trails with features.

My GF just got a Mach 6 as her quiver killer. She needed something light and efficient she could ride everything from XC to DH trails on and we don't shuttle so every 1' of down must be earned.

I think going 650B is a smart move. I put her on big 26er tires that really helped her roll through tech and despite the weight penalty she was overall faster. Going 650B she can run a lighter tire and still have a taller wheel than her 26er.

She likes the longer travel, higher BB and slacker front end of the M6, but I bet she'd like how light the Solo was.
