    Who Makes XS (or even XXS) Mullet Trail Bikes?

    Rather than go to every manu's web pages, thought I would ask here.
    I did see the Juliana 5151. Any others off the top of your head?
    (Wifey is 4' 11" and a scoche, but she is 29-er curious. )

    Juliana Roubian and Furtado are both mullets. My wife has the Furtado and daughter the Roubion and they both love them. However, they are both straight 27.5s from just before Juliana changed to mullets - which was on purpose.

    I rode a bit yesterday with Kaitlyn Boyle and her current favorite bike is the Pivot Shadowcat in XS set up as a mullet. She might be a couple inches taller than your gal but I bet you could get R to standover it.

    ^^ I love my shadowcat as a straightup 27.5, but if you were going Pivot you could also do an XS Switchblade and mullet that.

    Yeah, I think those are the best three smaller bikes for women generally - Roubion, Furtado and Shadowcat are all stellar bikes.

    The XS fuel EX comes with 27.5 wheels but you could then put a 29 up front and it has flip chips and stuff to run mixed wheels.

    Really early Oct I'll be on White Rim, but after that, it would be awesome to grab a ride. Let's figure it out.

    possibly check out kids bikes?
    So the world is filled with tubular entities. Food goes in one end and shit comes out the other. Sperm goes in and babies come out.

    I don't think there are any light 27.5/29 mullet kids bikes with ~130-140mm travel...

    Atherton bikes come in 22 sizes, I know of one petite rider who bought one because of this. No idea if they come in mullets though.
