Is that a 100 mm fork? If so, does she find that it handles well with that length? I know the Yeti specs the XS and XXS geometry out with 80mm forks. My wife has an XS with a SID 80mm fork and is going to get a new fork. She was thinking about getting a 100mm Magura, but is worried that making the head tube angle any slacker than the 69* it's already at would really screw up the handling.

I'm not the OP, but I have a 100mm Fox F100RLC on my XXS Yeti and I think it handles great for me (I can't compare it to handling with a 80mm fork though). I bought my own build kit rather than getting one of Yeti's, but even the Demo/floor model in the shop had a F100RLC on it (XTR build kit).

I'm not currently near my bike (across the country actually), but I can estimate my head tube angle when I get back to it next week if you'd like.

Here's a pic (I'm still dialing in stem length and stack height so forgive the spacer madness ;) ):

Yes, it is a 100mm fork. Sorry can not report on the ride yet as she is 8 month pregnant. Will report as soon as posible.:devil:
