    What is it about the women's specific frame that she likes? There are probably some small frame options with VERY similar geometry to "women's specific" geometry in terms of standover, length, etc.
    I put my wife on an older GT hardtail mtb, and it fit her great... made before "women's specific" designs.... it's just a "small". Something like that with skinny tires and maybe drop bars would be very cool for a girly around-town bike.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    Hello, Kramer...I can see by your post that you are in need of some woman-specific advice. As a woman I would advise you - if at all possible - to pursue the WSD (woman's specific desire), the Kona Dr. Lisa she is interested in. Perhaps you can get some "extra credit" toward the next birthday or holiday gift to help the budget some and save yourself some shopping trauma.

    I hope you folks find a bike that makes her happy, but I don`t understand why guys keep comming here asking what bike to get for their wives/girlfriends. Whoever it is wanting the bike is the one who should be looking at the options and asking the questions. There`s no way I`d let my wife pick a bike for me, I won`t burden her with one that I`ve decided on. Well, good luck with the search.
    Recalculating....
