The vertically challenged can have a hard time riding a bike. Are you constantly straining forward so your feet can reach the pedals? Crouching over so your arms will reach the handlebars? Struggle no more! Sixthreezero has bikes for short people that are comfortable and reliable. You’ll never have to dread hopping on your bike again; our bikes for short riders are a dream!
A Bike Built Just for You
Finding a bike for your short body type is easy on sixthreezero. Just enter your height and weight into our Body Fit calculator, and we’ll let you know which bikes are the right fit. Bicycles for short riders offer a reasonable stand-over height and smaller wheels, so you don’t feel like you’re mounting a horse just to hop on your bike for a trip to the park.
Comfortable Rides for Short Riders
Not only are the best women’s bikes from sixthreezero built with a variety of body types in mind, but they’re comfortable. Try out our beach cruisers for a ride that encourages good posture and lets you get smoothly from point A to point B on flat terrain. Hybrid and city bikes let you make your way across a variety of terrain with shock-absorbing tires to protect your joints.
Best Features of Bikes for Shorties
Bikes for shorter riders have smaller tires and a step-through frame to make mounting easy. But wait, there’s more! You’ll also enjoy the same features that big and tall riders get from their bicycles. For instance, at sixthreezero, our EvryJourney bike has: a lightweight aluminum frame, so even petite riders can lift their bike over a curb or onto a car rack; 7 speeds, so you can go into a low gear when you’re climbing a hill with your short legs; and attachment points, so you can add a basket or cup holder or another essential accessory to your bike frame.
Bikes built for small statures also place a premium on seat placement and comfort. Stop ending up with a bum bruise because your butt is perched atop a seat too far from the pedals! Leg extension should be easy, and you should feel like you’re sitting on a cloud.
Ideal Uses for Your New Bike
If you’re used to being relegated to a kids’ bike – it’s time to realize that the world is still your oyster. All you need is an adult bike built for someone with your frame. Just because you’re on a bicycle built for someone 5 feet tall or under, doesn’t mean you can’t go the distance. Long live (and ride) short cyclists! A bike built for short riders can travel almost 20 miles at a time and reach a speed of 20 mph. You’ll be zooming to work like a champ in no time or tearing up the state park with the best of the 6” cyclists you’ve always watched from afar. Bikes for short riders are ideal for commutes, leisure rides on the weekends, and riders with knee pain.
Just because you’re short doesn’t mean you can’t find an adult bike that fits like a glove. Finding a small women’s bike or a cycle for short men has never been easier. Our Body Fit tool takes just a few seconds to recommend the best bike for someone of your stature.
