    I am looking for an aluminum or carbon road bike frame. My
    riding partner is really short, and needs to upgrade her
    bicycle, starting with the frame. Email me if you have
    something. Thanks for reading. Mark

    Mark: Keep in mind that not all 43cm frames are created
    equal, and those designed for 700c wheels are often built
    with the same length top-tube found on a 50cm bike, simply
    because there's a minimum distance required for front
    wheel/pedal clearance. Thus even if you find one small
    enough from a standover height issue, it might be too long a
    reach from the seat to the bars.

    What's the scoop on the bike she's presently riding? What
    type of frame is it and how long is the top tube?
