Hybrid Fitness Bike for Girlfriend
So i'm trying to find information on good bikes for women to use primarily as fitness. I am getting back into cycling after taking a couple years off due to laziness and my girlfriend wants to join in.
I personally have a Trek 7.3 FX and want to get her something similar but her price range is no more than 500. I told her that if we found a bike that was 500 exactly i would pay for taxes and other accessories she would want like packs, computer, etc.
My question is for the ladies out there. My girlfriend is a little shorter, probably 5'5" or so. and we will primarily be using this bike for fitness on trails with crushed gravel, and some road riding around the neighborhood.
anyone have any pointers on bikes you have fallen in love with?
