    Hi!

    Hello everyone! My name is Katherine (and I've actually never gone by the nickname Katie... don't ask why I chose this name xD). My car broke awhile ago, was too expensive to fix and I've been bumming rides off friends ever since.

    Recently, one of my friends was like, "I'm tired of worrying about my car and putting so much money into it. I'm going to buy a bike and have that as my sole means of transportation."

    And then I stole his idea. Or I would have, except I'm 5'2", so my regular bike didn't work too well for that. And then I couldn't find one for short people like me that I could afford. So I turned to the Bike Forums for help!

    Whelp... that's my story.

    Welcome Katherine! Yes, check a good bike shop as they will have a decent selection of frame sizes to fit you. Nothing is worse than cycling with the wrong size bike!
