    NC700X Good Fit for 5'6" Woman?

    I'm not sure if she is 5'6" or 5'7", but somewhere around there.

    Would the NC700X be a good fit for someone that size?

    Also depends on leg length. You know her inseam?

    I have a 30” inseam and I can flat foot it when stopped.

    I'm 5'6 with a 29" inseam and I cannot flat foot. I've lowered the bike about an inch. With both down, I'm on the balls of my feet. I have no problem getting one leg down even before lowering, but its very easy now.

    Weird, I have a 30" inseam and I can only get the balls of my feet on the deck.

    This bike would be fine for some one of that height if they are comfortable with it. She needs to get on it and ride. She'll let you know if it feels right.

    The YouTuber Wheels not Heels is 5’9”

    In this video she discusses lowering links at 2:36.

    I'm 5'6" and my bike is raised about 1/2" plus the seat is 3/4" higher. My 29" inseam allows just the toes and balls of my feet to touch.

    Also a 29" inseam. Not so much with the Honda now that I mostly use it for local trips, but usually when riding the GS, I wear North Face over the ankle hiking boots that have thick soles and make things steadier at a stop, or uneven ground.
