    I try to buy a bike for my gf. She is about 5'2 tall. And we went to bike shop last week, tried on 48cm bike. it was way too high for her. And i just search around, and found SE Draft Lite or Schwinn Racer under $300 with small size. Did any one know how these bikes??

    You might want to find out when Bikesdirect will have the Windsor Hour in 43cm back in stock. At $279 delivered, you won't find a better deal.

    I personally own a SE DRAFT LITE and I love it. I haven't had any issues and have put many miles on it. It has held up very well for me.

    This looks like a stale thread, but since it's been revived I'll say that I've been riding an SE Draft for a while now and think it is a decent bike for the money -- lot of fun to ride. The SE Draft Lite comes two hand brakes, flip-flop hub, freewheel and fixed cog -- so you're all set. The Schwinn Racer comes with a coaster brake and front hand brake. For me personally, I prefer hand brakes to coaster brakes -- and the flip-flop is nice to have -- so I prefer the SE Draft Lite.

    Actually, they do make a 24" single speed which has basically the same components as the Draft -- it's called the Soda Pop 24.
