Get a thinner seat, but I wouldnt recommend Lowering links... They will throw the suspension out of wack. If your not a track goddess, your going to have a hard time compromising and I dont want to see you get hurt or put down a new bike....That would work if I were a man, but since I'm a WOman, I'll keep the card I got!It is my first bike to own, personally, but not to ride. I am 5'2 as well I just wasnt trying to be leanin at the light! Feel me. I'm trying to find someone to shave my seat down around these parts, but dont know who to ask.... and/or trust.
