Low seat. Really low.

Gonna try to get the girlfriend on her own bike in the spring. 4'10" tall with 26 in inseam. She has sat on several bikes and finds them all too tall or seat wide which makes them feel too tall.
Not opposed to lowering a bike or swapping seat out.
Whatcha think ladies n gentlemen?

My wife is 4' 11" and started with Suzuki S40 and recently moved up to S50. I did put lower shocks on the S50 and later may take some off the seat. And they are both priced right.
