Mlux, I forgot to add that my 5 foot wife's bike is an XS surly troll, and her road bike is a similar sized giant women's frame, so at 5'3" you would certainly seem to be in the ballpark.

re those "extenders", I've bought and installed one for an older friend, they do work, but personally I find them pretty darn ugly, but that's neither here nor there.

if your hips don't rock, that's a great sign.
My troll with dropbars has the drops in a conservative height, and I can very much comfortably ride in the drops for big headwinds, this is a real advantage.
here is my troll where you can see bar height. My seat is more level now.
you can see the really short stem.
