  Gear for smaller riders
So, I spent part of yesterday helping a friend try and locate gear that would fit. My friend is about 4'11" tall and weighs about 110 pounds. I have to tell you, there isn't that much out there for someone so small.

At April's suggestion,he tried on some ladies jackets. A ladies size small fit him fairly well. He at least had a good sense of humor about this though. The jacket that fit the best had little rose patches on the sleeves and chest. My friend decided that if they were removed, it would just look like a unisex jacket. He said it would be just his luck that while he was waiting at a light, a cool girl would ride up wearing the same jacket.

He's going to keep looking but might have to buy that rose jacket. He has the right idea though. He's buying gear before he actually picks up his used starter bike.
