A full-size euro-descent white male, yes.. But hey...lots of us are fly-weights in comparison...particularly if you look at the way demographics are shifting...whether it's just the fly-weight 17-yo, or a woman, one of the scads of people ethnically from south/central America/Asia, but raised in the States... When I go back to my parent's country, I'm a friggin' giant in comparison, and I'm 5'-8". Well, ok, I'm "large." I guarantee you I'd "look normal" on a Grom, bcs it's actually not *that* low a seat, at 29" and change. It's definitely not *quite* as suitcase-sized as the original monkeybikes.
