If you're short, you might not think you have much choice when it comes to buying a new bike, but the reality is you do.

For this feature, we've classed 'short' as being between 5'5" and 5'7" with average leg length.

We’ve put together a list of current bikes with a maximum seat height of 790mm (31in) which may sound a little high but when you factor in added height from boots, even short riders will cope. 

We've also thought about the weight of the bike; a Honda Gold Wing may have an ideal seat height of 740mm, but it's a wide seat and the bike weighs a hefty 405kg - that's not something short legs want to be supporting...
