So it's about time that I start looking for a good deal on a new XC bike and wondered what other DH addicted women are riding for XC. I ride a '02 Giant NRS now with an '04 Marzochi Marathon SL. I'm always afraid I'm going to crack the frame (it creaks A LOT) doing something stupid that it wasn't designed for, so that makes me think I need a more all mountain type bike....except I am a terrible climber so any help with climbing by the bike would be much appreciated. Right now I cannot stand up and climb on my current bike. The geometry is just not right for it. I can however stand and climb on my old hardtail and would like to be able to on a future bike. So what do other women use daily for their XC rides?
