I have a bike that is way too big for me and as a result, I don't ride it much. I'd like to change that and am looking at WSD bikes.
- I'm just barely 5" tall and my limbs are proportionate to that
- I'm in so-so shape (I walk about an hour a day--2 x 30 min--at a brisk city pace, and twice that on the weekends, but that's my only exercise)
- my commute is about 7 km each way, on city streets, paved paths and a short distance of packed dirt path (city paths that have a lot of riders, not rugged mountain bike-y paths)
- I want to stay in the $500-600 range
I've been looking a lot online and am going this afternoon to try out the most entry level Specialized Vita
in extra small. The other bike I'd like to try is the entry level Trek 7.2 FX WSD
Any short women out there with experience with either of these bikes? Or short women with other suggestions?
I appreciate people wanting to be helpful, but I'm really looking for feedback on how these bikes work specifically for really short women's bodies, so if you're over 5'3" and/or a guy, that's not really the answer I'm looking for.
