1st post so please don't shoot me down! [and apologies if this is in the wrong place]

I need to buy a mountain bike for my wife. She is of small stature (5'1"), and most importantly the bike must be as light as pos - it must not be heavy. It will be used on tarmac/ paths only.

I have no idea of makes, wheel sizes, frame sizes, or suppliers. I am aiming to pay up to £250.

I would be most grateful for any advice or suggested deals.

"Thank you"

for super lightweight, you need an aluminium frame and alloy wheels... there are lots of 'hybrid' models about at the moment - i think these would probably suit her best. Theyre usually very light weight / easy to pedel, and most are designed with the specific ladies dimenions in mind.
im 5'4'' and im just about happy on a 17'' frame.. so i should think she'll need something a bit smaller. Maybe a 15'' - but i would never buy a bike without trying first, as there are other things to consider, such as the reach to the handlebars

This ones quite a good deal, you get a few accessories with it, but they dont have anything smaller than a 17''.

in my opinion, you cant go much wrong with a GIANT - theyre built to last, so maybe check out their models too - Tredz
Many, many thanks Narfette - your help is very much appreciated.
