Looking at a el cheap-o bike to use while I save up for a nicer ride.
One option I have come across is a Magna brand bike owned by an elderly couple. They bought a pair of these a few years ago and rode them a couple times then put them away in the garage ever since.
Both of them a womens models. I personally do not have an issue with riding a womens bike. I actually prefer them due to the fact that I am a short guy and most cookie cutter men's bikes are simply too tall for me. My family jewels are usaully squeezed against the top bar when straddling a mass market bike. Should I ever need to get off the seat in a hurry I will pay for it.
My wife seems to think that ladies models being ridden by guys is some sort of social taboo.
How many of you guys ride a "ladies" model bike?
