I'm a 6'4 male, but took this XS ladies bike on a 20km loop of the Grampians Rail Trail a couple of weeks ago...

I'll bet it was fun. Riding a bike with a super short reach and a bolt-upright riding position is strangely enjoyable sometimes. It just feels so natural. It's not all that efficient from a pedaling or aerodynamic perspective, but it is fun.

Haha...not exactly comfortable. I didn't spend too much time in the seat, had to ride it like a BMX, but the ride was enjoyable enough nevertheless. I think this is why a lot of people don't get into cycling - riding hand-me-downs' that don't fit, or borrowing someone's bike that is invariably the wrong size.

Makes me appreciate having a bike that is appropriately sized even more.
