Will a Downtube Mini fit a petite female?
I'm interested in the Downtube Mini, but am wondering how it can fit such a wide range of claimed rider heights. Is the top tube fixed in length, or does it telescope in some way? If it is fixed, is all the cockpit adjustment via different stem sizes?
I am a petite female, 5'1-1/2", with a short torso, so normally need WSD (womens-specific design) road bikes with short top tubes. I ride a 44-46 cm frame in road bikes and an XS Titus Racer X mountain bike.
Could someone with a Mini measure the effective top tube for me, from the center of the seat tube to the center of the top tube (parallel to the ground)? That's probably the only way I'll know if it will fit since I doubt I'll find one to test ride.
Thanks so much for your help!
