Martha and I have been doing a bit more riding lately, and it's become apparent that she needs a new bike. Her mongoose hardtail MTB fits her terribly.
We were on vacation in Key West, and had a blast on rented singlespeed cruisers. It became apparent to me that it's far easier to go slowly when I'm on a bike that's not built for speed. Psychologically as well as physically.
So, in the pursuit of riding-more-with-the-wife, we went to the shop today, and she's considering getting a Navigator. I know the Navigator is a solid bike, so no worries there.
I tried a few bikes myself, and I'm thinking about getting an Electra Townie 3-speed. The point would be for me to ride in a more relaxed position than I do on any of my other bikes.
Has anyone ridden one of these? Are they well made? Any problems I should be aware of?
(And why is it only the ladies' bikes that come in cool colors?)
