I'm looking for anybody that has a 16" Asta frame built up that my wife could check out and see if it's going to work for her petite frame.

Any help out there? It sure would help out a great deal!

Sorry I don't live in your area, but for what it's worth, I'm a 5'5" female and the 16" inch Asta frame is a great fit. To my surprise, I was able to stay w/ the stock stem and handlebars with no problems.

I tried out a lot of bikes, both regular frames and women's specific. I was amazed what a natural fit the Asta was for me.

Good luck..feel free to ask me any more questions if needed.

Sunnyrider perhaps?

I think Sunny lives in MD and got a 16" frame, but she hasn't been in the forums since she got the bike. I think she took off riding and hasn't come back yet. :D :thumbsup:

Hasta and Clyde, thanks for the responses. Hasta, my wife is 5' 2" with a 29" inseam with mountain biking shoes. And I know the standover for the 16" Asta is 27", I don't want to have to buy the bike only to find out it's too big.

Clyde, I'll shoot Sunny a PM and see what I can come up with!

Thanks again!

Good idea

You might want to place a call to Jack at Ibex, too. He's very helpful with sizing.

Jake, how true that is.

I called Jack and he said that she is definitely on the low end of the sizing but oh well. I'll probably just go ahead and try it out when the funds open up.

Thanks again, all!
