Do a CL search for 650c and see what pops up.
Cool, thank you so much for the tip. I'm not really sure what road bikes I've tried in the past, but I really didn't fit them. One of the better bikes I've had was a folding one because the frame was so tiny. being under five feet makes little things like that hard, but there are certainly ways around it. I would LOVE it if I could find a road bike that fits. I really like how lightweight they are.
No problem. Being under 5 feet, you'll probably be looking for a 43 - 47 cm frame. I'm 6'5", so I often have the opposite problem when searching for bike stuff on CL (62cm frame).
