I have a 12 year old daughter who's about 5'8" and a 15 year old who is about 5'2" or less. The younger one was messing about on my bike in the garage, and I thought about warning her about dropping it, but kinda knew she was fine. Apparently though the older one got on it to 'show her sister that it was too tall for her'. Well, it was either too tall or too heavy or both, because she dropped it in the garage. One of those 'thank goodness I ride a naked' days for sure, so it just bent the living crap out of the brake lever. So I guess I'll have to go and get that straightened or replace it (hard to get a full hand on it although it's still rideable). Lesson learned, I hope.
