    It'll probably be OK if she raises the seat, like a foot.


    I find the white frame and pink fork interesting. Leave it.

    A longer stem for sure. One reason it looks so tiny is that it appears to have about a 1-2 cm stem!

    I love the pink and white, tho!

    I wouldn't change the color either! That seat needs to come up, though.

    Great find!
