She is 5'4" and the small rip 9 fits her perfectly. I had to go with a short (70 0r 80mm) stem to make her cockpit dimensions work. She has ample standover clearance. To get proper sag at her light weight (120ish) the air pressure in the reba is about 60 psi, the fox rear is about 70 PSi. So far so good. She is running the wtb bronson 2.2 tires on stans ztr arch rims. I set her tire pressure at 23 psi in the front and about 21 in the rear. I actually believe I could go lower at her weight and improve her ride a bit. I might try 20 front and rear next ride.

Wow, encouraging to hear the rip 9 works for her. Would you happen to know what her inseam is with bike shoes on? Also, what bar is she using?

With the title of the thread, I was fully expecting 29er and swimsuit photos! My dirty mind.
I could put my Lynskey in a swimsuit and post photos... if it makes you feel better. My Pivot and IF weren't up to the exposure...

I forget the mountain, but we ski 100 plus days a year so who can keep it straight?

Yes, her inseam in shoes is 29.5 inches". She is using the niner flat top bar. The Bar has little to no rise. I think someone an inch or so shorter (5'2' or 5'3") would still be able to ride this frame in the small size.
