some guys can ride woman specific frame . In fact, some are better off using woman specific frame. Likewise, some woman are better off with man specific frame.

Yeah, i find it very low too. 14" frame size ma. I was deciding between 14" or 17" and the uncle advised me to go for 14" if i gonna go for off road in future, 17" will be tough. I think 15" or 16" would fit nicely for me
