At the moment I’m in an 85 big wheel and can easily flat foot both feet. I would prefer a 125 but not many are available, whereas 250F’s on the other side are looking closer to my price/availability range than 125s. My only hold back in a 250 is would it be too heavy? I weigh approx 130 lbs (60kgs) and am around 5’9. Would I also be better if adjusting the shock and forks on my 85 and stick with that for longer. Any help would be appreciated

The question you asked is whether you are too light for a 250f. I would say no. You are getting to the height and weight where the 250f has the potential to be much more stable than your 85.

You are not too light for any bike, just like a 300 pound guy is not too big for any bike. Body weight means nothing. What matters is what YOU feel comfortable on. Then what can you afford to buy and maintain. Then what kind of riding are you going to do. The only physical number that matters is inseam and only then, it is a comfort thing.
