I'm okay with that perception because it works in my favor
LOL! I do have step-thru frame. Although a more muted Royal Blue. Most of the ladies in my neighborhood on bikes are of the hipster variety. Or clearly working out. Occasional moms with tots. I see a lot more dads toting the kids in the trailer.
