Help!! Need a VERY small Road/Touring bike
Here is the problem. My girlfriend is looking to get a road/touring bike to keep up with me on my Trek 520, but she is very short (26-27 in. inseam). The only bikes that I have found that she would be able to stand over are from the Trek WSD line. Even then she needs a stand over of less than 27 in. Does anyone have any suggestions of other bikes to checkout? (We are currently looking at the Trek 1.2 WSD in a 43 cm frame)
The Fuji Newest 3.0 comes in a 42cm frame. The Specialized Vita comes in an "XS" that's even smaller than the Fuji. The Vita comes with flatbars, but changing those to drops shouldn't be a problem. Both models are less expensive than the Trek 1.2.

Still too big. We tried the Trek 1.2 in a 47 cm frame (27.2” stand over) and it was too big. I need a 26” or less.
