    Women's Stumpy?

    Is there any real difference between men and women's late model stumpjumpers?

    Would you rock a black and PINK bike if it was half price? ....

    The women's Stumpjumper is called the Safire. I guess the geometry is changed to better suit females, and make it a more controlled and comfortable ride. The saddle is changed too, and I think the handlebars are a little narrower.

    I have seen guys on ALL pink bikes, so all you have to do it ride with them and you wont too look gay. You better be good though, haha

    I'm 13 years old, and to be honest I quite like pink. I'm not gay, but having a pink bike (which I unfortuntely don't) would show people that I'm not afraid to be different. A few of my friends like pink too...

    That's my bike, I love it! Here's a pic. The pink is a bit brighter in person. I wouldn't buy it for my husband, but hey, to each their own...

    Some lines use different valving on the shock and fork to suit a lighter rider. Better check that out unless you're pretty light. Top tube is shorter too.

    differences depend on size...but here are some:

    seat
    handlebar width is shorter
    crankarms 170mm instead of 175mm
    front rotor is 160mm instead of 185mm
    shorter tt
    wheel base is shorter
    standover height is slightly lower

    my fiance has last years model and to be honest it's a sweet looking bike...but at the same time i don't think i would ride one myself

    Thanks for the info guys and gals. That's alot of pink on your fiance's bike pipes. Looks pretty sweet for what it is. I guess I'll just save up a little more and get a manbike. I almost had myself convinced I could take the heat from the rest of my riding group too but there seems to be too many real differences.
