Go Small: The Best Small Street Bikes

Bicycles come in all different shapes and sizes to serve different purposes. It’s important to find the bike that fits your needs and is the right size for your body. Small street bikes are usually recommended for anyone between the heights of 4’10” and 5’5”. A smaller frame means a shorter reach from the saddle to the handlebars, which may also make small street bikes a good fit for riders with shorter arms and torsos.
