trail riding for shorties

can anyone tell me if they know of trail riding companies in Europe that provide serows? I rode one last year and plan to go playing in April but might be too short for a CRF230 (am 5ft with leg measurement of 28 inches). Or does anyone know of a company that will lower a bike for a short arse.

cheers

Dee

Flick through a recent copy of TBM, plenty of offroad tour outfits advertising there. Compiling an email outlining your needs & sending it to all of them is probably the most efficient way of working out who can do what.

There were two issuse in late 2007 that did a review in two parts of all the well known outfits in Spain, worth buying as it detailed costs, bikes & value for money.

At 29.5 inside leg my crf230 often caught me out heightwise, I got a 'koubalink' that dropped the height by about 2", used the bike about 6 months and have now gone back to stock. I am sure you will find a serow will suit better though...good luck
