my girlfriend is 160cm, 72cm inseam - a priori, what size of bike should she need ? I have a 52cm Trek carbon frame lying around at home, would that fit or too large ? This is only for a ~3weeks period, very light use, so don't tell me 'go get professional fit'

Thanks !

I did it for me a few years ago, with one of the online recipes that used size, inseam and whatnot I forgot - since then I've bought many bikes, all of them online. So I figured, this is only for 3 weeks, I can probably use a similar method for the g/f

650s

Your girlfriend is small

I really like how 650 bikes fit for small women or for children

In most 650 Road bikes, she would fit nicely on a 47 to 49 cm frame
and the geometry would be more in line with her size using 650 wheels

That is my thought - but I think Terry does that
good place to check
