xsmall frameset wanted - any advice on a frameset for someone 5'2"?
Alright poloverse, I need your advice and your xsmall frameset if you have one to sell.
The xs bruiser felt fantastic (thanks DC Meg for lending out your bike!) but $500 is more than I can spare for a frameset right now. Anyone have opinions on the IRO Mark V HD? It's specifically designed for smaller riders, but how does it hold up on the polo court? I also found a small all-city 2010 freestyle frame for $250, but with a 47cm seat tube (compared to the bruiser's 40cm) I suspect it may just be to big.
In any case, your input on extra small frames is wanted and welcome - framesets or even fully built bikes for sale even more so. And just about anything would be better than the Kona stuff I'm riding now....
