    Wow, that is A LOT of money for not much bike, but that's what I find with all Terry bikes. Clever marketing to women. You can get way more bicycle for much less money from other manufacturers. Also, unless you are really small the 26" wheels are a severe disadvantage on a cross bike, larger wheels ride smoother and you'll have a much larger selection of tires available.

    There's a women's only cross sub-forum at Team Estrogen - you should be able to get good fitting advice there.

    I'd agree that crossers need 700c if at all possible - my MTB manages fine at 26, but it isn't limited to a 35mm wide tyre. This makes a big difference.
