If you find a bike that you like but it feels a slight bit too tall, go and talk to some shops before you buy anything. Look for places that deal with racing suspensions. My fiancee and I took my 2000 F4 to a place and they were able to lower it 1.75" so that she could ride it, and she is only 5'1". It was around $600-$700, but well worth it the first time I saw her face when she sat on it and realized she could ride it with no problems. I've even ridden it since then and at 6'2" and 230 or so, it was just fine. I probably rode it 40 or so miles and I couldn't tell any difference in handling. Anyway, good luck with the search, but I doubt you'll have any problems.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
