Sizing comes in inches and centimeters. The European standard is typically centimeters; the American standard is inches. Bikes range in all sizes - typically about 13 inches for adults, someone who is 4'10", and they go all the way up to about 21-22 inches, sometimes 23. The 23-inch mountain bike would be for someone who is at least 6'4" or taller, and everyone else falls in the range of 13 or 14-22 inches. It also depends on your torso and how long your legs are; a good bike shop fits you with the right sized bike. There are women-specific bike manufactures.
