Is 52cm bike too small?
It depends on how the bike is measured. If the 52 is a level top tube and actual seat tube length, I would say no, the bike is too small. If the bike is a sloping top tube and the actual seat tube is 52, then maybe. If the 52 is a virtual size, and the actual seat tube is less say 48 or whatever, then no.
