    Small Frame Bikes

    Anyone know of some good 13"-16" Bikes? Doesn't matter if its FS or HT, thanks.

    Good question, I was about to ask this myself.

    Since I hate aluminum, and don't want to spend a lot of money, I'm looking at the Airborne Lancaster and the Titus HCR.

    Both have a steeper seat angle and slacker head angle, which is a better design for small women.

    umm, I hope you don't think I am a woman... I just like a smaller frame.

    13-16" is a fairly broad range, most bike manufactures make them in that range.

    You have to look at what shock comes with the FS bike, that is what will decide what adjustments can be made. So simple answer would be yes, but you better check what shock comes with the bike and see what options it comes with to find out all the features it has.
