Yep...another guy asking about women's bikes...
Both riders are about 5'5" and have 29in inseams...
I've got a bike to donate parts, but might look at buying a complete bike if that's what works...budget/cost is a concern, but I'm way before that...my daughter has been mountain biking some and now seems open to road biking and my wife hasn't really enjoyed mtn biking on the hardtail she has and is adverse to the idea of spending money on a full-suspension. So, the idea here is a road bike with minimal adjustment that both could ride since they're similar in size.
We're in Birmingham, AL and while cycling is gaining ground, we're still not a cycling city or large enough to where the retailers will carry full lines of women's rides...they'll have a few, but finding a deal on a used bike will take some work. Still, there's plenty of choices if I take my time and be diligent....
before starting though...questions:
1) Is a WSD style frame over a unisex/smaller men's frame a smart idea?
2)The bike calculators are saying 50cm is where to start....if we go used, should this be what I look for when looking for potentials?
3) Any other suggestions?
Thanks so much for the help!!!
P.S. FWIW- I did browse this forum and read some older posts from guys asking about gals' bikes, but didn't really seem to answer my question(s). I'm just trying to make the best situation possible cause they're looking to me to do the research.
