I was wondering if there were other popular women's bikes. From looking around Specialized has the D4W line, Trek has the WSD bikes, Giant has Giant for Women but I wasn't sure which ones people had good experiences with.
My wife had an Orbea Mitis Dama, which was a 2005 model that she bought in 2006. I think their models included 2 or 3 that were women-specific, but I think they are using different model names now. Anyway, Orbea makes very nice bikes and if you order one, you can do a lot of customization to the component selection.
