I'm trying to get my wife to ride again. She used to ride when we first met, but not in a very long time. Her last bike was a Fisher Tassajara and she hated its weight and handling. I've mulled getting a new hybrid, but most are overpriced and phugly. I think it's the perfect chance to turn her onto CV, but I've gotta get it right on the first try.
I know she appreciates classic design so a little bling could go a long way in rekindling her interest. She's into Italian bags (as in Purse Forum) so I'm seeing that as another possible entree. At this phase I'd just like to get a sense of what's out there, honestly, I have no idea what it would look like. I'd love to show her a picture of something drop-dead gorgeous that would point us in the right direction.
Oh yeah, she's rather petite so it's gotta come in "small". Maybe a 650... show me your favorites!
