Looking for a good quality step thru bike for a lady
I have a girlfriend who's ready to buy a decent recreational bike in the $400-$600 range. She's a bit heavy right now and can't get her leg up over a standard bike's top tube. I think she needs a step-through design frame. I would like her to have a decent, light weight bike that's stout and built to last lots of troublefree miles.
I've been into better quality bikes for a long while now. My current ride is a titanium GT Xizang with Shimano XTR components. I would like her to have a decent chance to keep up with me, once she's in shape.
Do any of you guys or gals have any suggestions? I know the price bracket's a little low to be expecting top shelf frame and components. But I thought one of you 50+ guys might point us in the right direction. Any suggestions???
