I am looking for a bike to use 80% pavement and 20% relatively tame dirt. What bicycle would you suggest? Is an X-small frame appropriate for someone 5'-3" tall?
Hi there @Christie !
Thanks for reaching out to the Community! I would recommend that you look at some of the hybrid bike options available online. Take a look at the CTY series by REI. This bike comes in a few different models that have different features that may be important to you.
Most of our unisex bikes start at size S with a beginning range of 5'3". This bike does also come in a step-thru version which might be appealing.
Another series of bike to look at would be the Cannondale Quicks .
Here is a great article that might also be helpful as you begin making a decision. Hope this gets you started in the right direction!
@Christie thanks for verifying the exact model you are interested in! We are working on getting that answer for you and will update you as soon as possible!
The handlebar width on the CTY Step through 2.1, xs is 24" (61cm)
Hope that helps and please let us know if you have more questions.
