My riding partner for the last three years, another mom with similarly aged kids is moving away and I have a chance to cultivate a new riding partner or two or three. We did rides 30-50 miles long three days a week. I don't think I'll find one individual willing or able to do that again. I have a few possible candidates one needs more cultivating than the others but seems willing to try. I would need to help her find an appropriate bicycle. She is about 5' - tall. I'm looking for information on where to start to find a good entry level road or touring bicycle in a 43cm? Size. I ride a 46cm Surly which is clearly too big for her. I'm thinking a 13" hybrid/MTB with slick tires could also be an option? Anyone have any advice that could help?
