Has any one got one? After a few opinions on frame sizing for a female rider who's 5'5. The smallest frame is a 17 inch, would this be to big?

I'm not brilliant with frame geometry so any help and advice would be welcomed

    Why not measure up your current bike and compare the geometry?

    That said I did suspect it will be too big (long) for you.
    Current steed - Whyte T129, 2013 frame, mongrel Revelations, Giant dropper, Stans S1 wheelset. 12, Magura Trail Sport brakes, 1x11. 12.8Kg
  • The primal is not for me and this is her first. Bike.
    What's the main geometry points I should be looking at when sizing a frame up?

    I'm 5'7 ish and have a Dartmoor hornet small which fits well. the primal comes in small, medium, large and X-large. depending on her arm length/torso size either a small or medium would fit. I'd want a medium for top tube and reach length as the small wouldn't be big enough. I'd look at the geo for reach/stack/TT length and then compare to other bikes you can try. remember though that reach and TT length will change depending on the A2C measurement of the fork used.
