So it's been four seasons since I bought my wife a V1 loaded Bronson in size M. She is 5'7" and 115 lbs of muscle. It's time to get her something new. She rides a little of everything. We have a place on the island and the Bronson is a great bike over there 6"x6" and only 26lbs. I want to get her something that would ride a bit "bigger" for over here on the shore and in Vancouver without sacrificing the pedalability of the ride up. She likes technical climbs, alot.
I am looking at the 2018 yeti's as they are on sale. The SB6 (27.5 wheel size) seems nice and would be similar to what she has but with a little slacker and longer geo with 10mm more travel up front. This being said, everyone seems to be buying 29er yeti's. I am nervous about getting such big wheels for a shore/squamish bike for a light 5'7" woman.
PS, the poll should say something else, not sorting else - damn spell check
