I just got a new road bike and now my wife can't even begin to keep up on her wally-world bike. I like having her ride with me but I like going faster than 5 MPH...LOL. So now I need to get her something a little bit better. Not looking for top of the line but she needs something that doesn't weigh a ton and has fairly decent components. Cost is definately a factor too so the cheaper(to a point) the better. I know you normally get what you pay for but she's not gonna let me spend anywhere close to what I paid for my bike .
So anyway what I'm looking for is a nice road only bike that has more of an upright riding style. She does not want a racing style bike but she wants skinny road only tires but with a flat handlebar and more upright riding position. She really wants a "girls" style bike if possible. I was looking at the Fuji web sight and they have just what she wants in their "FORZA" series. I'm not familiar enough with all the brands to know if anyone else makes a bike like this.
So does anyone have any other suggestions for a nice road bike for her at a fairly low price???
