    Mother's Day Gift?

    My mom got me into biking as a kid. She moved to Portland, and left her trusty 1980's Schwinn frame at a friend's house. The friend threw the frame away!

    She's been riding a junky, cheap Trek she bought for like $300. It must weigh 40 lbs. Seriously, it sucks. She's been biking around Portland on this junky thing for a couple years.

    She's 4'11" and 3/4. Not a lot of bikes fit her.

    I see the Vaya fits down to 4'11". It would ideally be a surprise for Mother's Day. I was going to get ME a bike, but it'd be nice to get one for her. She's 54, so it'd probably be her last bike, but don't tell her I said that!

    Does anyone know anything about 4'11" people on a small Vaya?

    Salsa's site implies she would be just on the bottom end of the range for the 50cm Vaya. The best way to find out is to have her test ride one, though I suppose that kills the surprise.

    See if Universal Cycles in Portland can help with the right bike and maintain the surprise.

    I have a Vaya. It's awesome. You are a wonderful son/daughter. Good luck.
