Comfort bike for my wife
Okay, I know nothing about comfort bikes. What I'm wondering is what matters when it comes to fit?
It seems like that if you are sitting upright and your feet touch the pedals comfortably and your hands reach the giant handlebars then everything ought to be fine.
She won't be riding so far that she's going to do damage to her knees or anything like that.
Does she just get on it and see if it's comfortable?
I ride a road bike and I know about fitting for that, but not a comfort bike.
She also wants a bike that's not too "complicated." I think that means not too many gears and I try to explain that it's nice to be able to get up a hill. She thinks I'm crazy. I feel despair more than joy.
