    my girlfriend needs a bike.

    So i told my girlfriend i was getting her a bike. It's gotta be something with a flip flop hub, and something pretty small. I'm thinking i'll just get one of the Windsor bikes that bikes direct is selling, and be done with it. Wont have to piece together a bike, and i'm sure she'll like something shiny and new. I know it comes in a 49cm. , but does anyone know what the standover height is on that size. I couldnt find this listed on the website. I was hoping to have something put together but the end of this month. So basically what i'm sayin is..... is this bike gonna get me the ass that i so deserve, i mean she won't know the difference between this one and a $2k bike.

    Thanks. jdb.

    if the windsor is the same as the fuji (or is that the mercier?) then the standover on the 49cm (measured c-t, not c-c) is just under 30inches.

    Nice. I think just under 30" should be fine for her. I ride a 53cm. and my inseam is only about 30"-32"

    my wife rides a 48 and she has a 30" inseam
    I really hope the bike conversation didn't go like this "I 'm getting you a bike" "ok whatever" if it did get her something else she isn't into bikes too many dudes get their girls bike because they think it would be great to do but they aren't feeling it 90% of the time
    plus you get more brownie points when you ask her exactly what she wants in a bike and build it for her

    If you love your gf - $500 is nothing compared to what you'll spend to put a lil bling on her finger.
    Lead me not towards temptation, for I shall find it myself !

    Yeah. Dude's riding a tiny bike, unless he's exaggerating with that wide 30"-32" estimate.

    no offense, but did you ask her if she wanted a bike?
    I got a partner really pissed off at me for giving them a bike once.

    First of all, you don't deserve her ass if you're just going to stick on some half-ass bike. Take the time and build her up one with creativity and love. If she's not worth it, then stop wasting her time. And if you don't want to or can't build her up one, find someone who can...maybe she will fall in love with him instead.

    Heres the deal. She has this big huge pink cruiser. It's such a pain to drag around everywhere we go. I told her i was going to get her a new bike just to make any ride so much easier. Theres no way she's gonna be cruisin around on that thing downtown. It just sucks. So i asked her like what colors she likes, and that kinda thing. She really doesn't know and could care less about the differences between bikes. I think this is really just for me, hoping that a new bike will pursuade her to get out and ride with me and give us one more thing in common.

    Oh about the bike i ride. It's a 53cm. rush hour, and i'm tellin you when i stand over that thing it's scary. My business is gotta be on one side or the other. Theres just not much room. I buy pants with a 30" inseam, but i guess my legs are even shorter than i thought. ****.

    hey I really like my fuji track.. I had to change a bunch of things, but it is still a really fun and inexpensive bike (I still had to change (at the very least) the handlebars, seat and stem).. I totally suggest you get her a cheaper bike so she can see how she likes it (and she will like more than her cruiser or shes an idiot ) and when she gets way into it then you guys can build up a sweet bike together... leaving the cheap bike as a beater.. hurray! thats what Im doing

    Sucks to be you guys. I had to edit out a few comments that were not appropriate for the forums. You guys sure do know how to treat the ladies though.
