In Europe (not just the Netherlands), lots of people of both genders ride step-through bicycles, and they sell step-through bicycles in many of the shops there. I've been to Belgium and France, and Rowan has been to the Netherlands, Belgium, and France and we've had a good look at what's available.

As for what we have ... we've got several step-through bicycles in our garage in various states of rebuilding. I want one as a town bicycle, just to cruise around on. The setup would work well for short distance rides ... while my titanium road bicycle with the horizontal top tube works better for long distance cycling.

BTW - I'm a woman, and the bicycles in my collection with horizontal top tubes are not "men's bicycles" ... they're mine, so they are woman's bicycles.
