Thanks to you who helped me get this far. So I want an mx bike I can ride in the woods. I really like the idea of the xc-f as it has e start and I am a female only 5'5". The down side is you can't lower the back end like w/other brands. My two concerns w/ the xc-f is the weight and will I be able to give it a handful out of corner before a jump and get the same amount of power as I did on my crf250r on the track? I wish one of the other guys like Honda would put e start on an mx bike. Any feedback is appreciated. Any girls out there have any advice?
