I'd like to take on this notion that women need a women's specific Geometry. The big industry secret is that there is no such thing as women's specific because no two women are built the same.

We know that lot's of people have a difficult time finding a bike that fits. Often riders have to compromise their saddle position and ride stems that are too long or too short and still can't get it right. We offer a truly different option.
If you've read anything about cycling lately, You know that getting a bike that “fits” is very important. What does that mean?
