Hmm.. and here I was hoping for a thread about those androgynes in the Calvin Klein advertisements...
Personally, I have no problem riding or being 'seen' on a mixte frame
, which is what your looking for. so-called 'ladies' frames are a poor design that the mixte frame overcomes while keeping the low top tube height. As in individual, I would like to see a return of some of these frames, especially on city or commuter bikes.
On the other hand, as a big complay I would have to gauge sales vs. the cost of design, production, and an ad campaign to overcome the notion that they are "ladies" bikes. In the long run, not many companies would be willing to take the plunge methinks.
Anyway, my point is maybe look for an older mixte frame and fix it up into your daily rider?
