I'm working long distance here, so please excuse me for any faux pas. My daughter, who lives in Chicago has decided she wants a bike for local commuting, running errands, and such. I told her I would help her find one, as much as I could. She is pretty short - 5', so I am looking for input as to the size she would ride. Should I be looking for a 48cm? I'm thinking that a three or five speed internal hub would be pretty cool, and low maintenance which would be a big plus. She lives in the Oak Park area, so would be looking fairly locally in that vicinity; but I also thought if possible I could find something down here are attempt my first c&v fix-up. Looking for any words of wisdom you all can provide.
