    Bike options 40-43CM frame

    The time has come to buy my wife a GOOD bike. This is the lady that just rode her age (52 miles on my moutian bike).

    Problem is short legs. measuring standover bearfoot, we get just shy of 70CM.

    I know cannondale has a r700 in 40 or 44. Any other options?

    Giant, in the OCR range do an XS frame that is a 42cm and there isa smaller one. They also do a womans frame aswell.

    Don't know if it is available in US but the NEW giant range over here is SCR. I have just got a 42.5 SCR 3.0and I am short, but use a still smaller frame. Sometimes I think I must be deformed but attachment is of the 42,5 frame for a 29" inseam and short arms.


    See

    http://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/030...2006&range=288

    For Giant OCR range and they also have geometry tables there aswell.

    Currently the 2005 range seem to be on close out.

    Check out Terry Bikes. They have kind of a cult following among short women. Everybody I have known who actually has one LOVES it.
