Need help finding a bike.
I've searched everywhere and found a few topics but most of them are old and outdated or just not helpful at all.
I'm 5'0 and have, obviously, tiny legs. I have a 50cm bike I built from just a frame, but it's too big. I can't stand over it. At all. For a comfortable fit I need about a 27" "700mm" standover. Having 700 wheels on a bike makes this complicated.
I've found the fuji track. The 43cm has 650c wheels and a 700mm standover. Which would be perfectnut I don't even know if it's for sale yet and I can't find any used.
So I also found some 43cm frame bikes on bikes direct. The Windsor hour comes in 43 with 700c wheels. It's only $275 and I can buy a set of fixed 650 wheels for 90 bucks and save at least 250 bucks.
But then I would have to put new tires on the wheels and possibly buy a new fork.
Any suggestions on possibilities or any other 650 or 43cm bikes that aren't too expensive. I just put 400+ dollars and hours of elbow grease into a bike my lbs said would fit. And it doesn't fit at all.
