I'm pretty new to the cycling world, as well at this forum. I recently purchased a cannondale about two weeks ago, and I really enjoy it for myself. I would like my wife to join in on this new experience although I really wouldnt know how how to find a "womens" road bike? Is there much of a difference? I went with my brother and his wife a couple of days ago, the guy at the store didn't really give me an indication that it was made specifically for a woman. "other than the frame size" Is there certain type of models I should look for specifically made for women? Just by looking at the bike how would I know its a womens bike? In truth im not even sure I bought a good bike, he said it was a good deal for 800.00$ but I wouldnt be able to tell the difference from a good bike and great bike. Can someone fill me in on this please?
