I'll believe it when I see it but, hey, I'm supporting her all the way.
She's maybe 5'1" and thinks she'd be more comfortable and secure on a MTB as opposed to a roadie.
She won't ride it all that much so I'd say whatever she feel better about is the way to go. I suppose a hybrid wouldn't really be out of the mix, either.
Is there any reason to just look at women's models or is the game pretty wide open?
