      Can anyone suggest a full suspension mtb or fat bike for a 5’2″ (157.5cm) 190lb (86.2kg) rider? I’m a novice, but I’m used to jumping dirt bikes, so I should be riding hard quickly.

      I’m 5’5″ and about 195 with a 28″inseam. I really love my 2018 Giant Trance 2, size small.

      I’m 5’3” with 28” inseam and 185-190 lbs ready to ride. Ride a medium Ibis Mojo 3, small Santa Cruz Bronson, occasionally rides the wife’s small Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 in 27.5+ Version. Check out the SC Bronson or SC 5010.

      A 63 y.o., 5’5″ with inseam just below 29″ who rides a rigid Mukluk (size small) fatbike set up year round (winter 26X4.5″, summer 27.5X2.8″) including a supported GDMBR over 43 days last summer.  You may have to stay with 26″ wheels (or possibly even 24″) but there are OEM that have XS frames with sloping-dipping top tubes for better standover.  good luck.

      Fatback Corvus is available in a 14″ frame.  Their fatbike frames may be most beautiful ones currently on the market and they will ship out of Bend, OR. (nearly purchased one of their new red/black ones tho the Mukluk won out on mounts for self supported trips/girth of the down tube-fat tires sure spit up mud).

      5’6″, 28″ inseam, 230 lbs.  I ride a Rocky Mountain Fusion 29″, size small.  It’s a hard tail.  Stand over height is the max I can go.
