Running 150r in women's harescrambles... wheel size matter?

Recommended Posts

I was considering running the 150r in harescrambles in MA/CT, but upon reading the rules.. I became a little confused about wheel size? It seems to me you have to have a 16/19" setup (the big wheel version), but the regular size 150 I have has a 14/17" setup... there is NO way I could have fit on the BW, I am a 23 and 4'9" female that has not grown an inch since I was 12 lol. Anyone familiar with harescramble rules? One section read that the womens class must be on full sized bikes.. I would consider this a full sized bike but the wheel specs confused me.. please help! I tried e-maling NETRA to no avail...

I bought the Expert for my daughter to hare scrambles with. My understanding of the rules is, 16/19 or bigger for womens class MX, but no size requirement for H/S. This is how I understood them, which may be incorrect.

Worse comes to worse, you could always lower the suspension to the height of a small wheel. Even lower.
