i tried it. the frame seems to fit me. when i straddle it there is about 2-3 inches clearance. when seated, and when my foot is on the lowest part of the paddle, my knee is fully extended. so it seems to be the correct size. but i'm not sure about the geometry of a women's frame. whether it'll be suitable.
since u mentioned u tried, did u feel that u were over arcing the handle bar?

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean arcing in the sense where if my hands go beyond the handle bar then i have to arc my back to compensate?

If that's what you mean, no i didnt feel that..

no its M951 not M952.. i noe M952 is 9 spd.. but M951?? no info one leh
if i'm not wrong shimano made 950 and 951 as 8speed first
but 9 speed came out soon after that then they start making 952 and 953 as 9speed before they redesign the grouppo.
just like 970 and 971 rear d is the same design but one is low normal one is high normal.
one year later they came out with the shadow so they make it 972

you learning on platform or clipless? dont learn with clipless, no use.
dont learn on flat. try a very low kerb. maybe half the height of normal kerb and try
if you learning on xc bike, start from street bike if you can borrow or what. alot easier

Hi guys, would like to find out what is a good frame for a stunt bike. My current bike is not really good for stunts.

Matt finish spray paint?

No one rides stunt bike here? I really want to learn. So far can only pull the front of the bike up.

The first scratch is the most painful, don't worry about it. After a few scratches, u wont bother anymore.

If u don't want scratches, dont ride the bike
