nothing lower than a 125. you're short, but you're 15, not 10i'd get sx125 or yz. 144 too if you want it, but it's $300 more.the difference between sx and xc is that the xs is for trail riding and the sx is for racing. Although, you can still easily use the sx for trail riding.i have a sx125. it's great for woods. ------

Well, you're at a tricky age and size right now. A 100/105 would probably fit you well now but you may outgrow it quickly. A 125 is the way to go if you can handle the seat height. Just go to the shop and sit on a 125 and a 100/105 to see what fits you best. I'm pretty sure the KTM125 is a little shorter than the Japanese bikes so it may be a good choice. Just one thing I'd like to add about the above answer. The XC isn't really a trail bike, it is a woods racing bike. That may be splitting hairs, but I just didn't want you to confuse it with other low performance bikes that are labeled"trail bikes". One good rule of thumb concerning dirt bikes, if it is liquid-cooled it is a race bike, if it is air-cooled, it is a trail/play/pit bike. ------
