    I'm still working out my MB ideal size. A zero-offset seatpost for my KOPs usually allows me to size-up since I sit so far forward. I'm 5'7" with longer legs and arms. I do like that bigger bikes...

    My hesitation with Surly for you was that they all come with the same size crank-arms, relatively short head tubes, large handlebars, and some of the components are the least expensive possible,...

    That Hellga looks like a fun ride, and the horizontal top tube is very short. I suspect the components will be more specialized for petite riders, too.

    Just FYI, I have 'regular' wheels on my Krampus, they are only 35 mm. I put standard sized mb tires on them. Both these things reduced cost. The bike is designed to use 50 mm wheels (and take 3 inch...

    So, a fatbike, gravel, and mixte. Yep. That sounds busy! (Just kidding).

    Are you thinking steel for all of them? Any idea about the gravel and mite?

    Salsa Vaya in Ti. ;)

    After looking, the Surly ECR is also available in that size. It's a mid-fat bike, tires up to 3 inches (like my Krampus). Advantage is in weight. Should be a much lighter build than a full fat bike....

    The smallest Pugsley from Surly might work, Crankin. I saw someone talking about it on the mountain biker forums recently. She was 5'1" on a size 14.
