Hi Patamel,

First off 5'2" is not small! I would expect to see you on a ladies bike with a 17" frame. Do not go for a childs bike, it will not fit you.

I'll second cotterpin's suggestion about a second hand bike, particularly if you are going to leave it on the street. You can take some of the risk out by seeing if any bike shops local to you have any second hand bikes. A couple of phone calls should find that out. You might pay a little more from a shop but at least it should have been looked at and you have somebody to go back to if you have problems. They would also sort you out with a seat.
