New Fuji? Which model is this?

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

My guess is that itís a Transonic type model for women.
But, I agree. Itís very nice looking.

Some "women's specific" bikes have different proportions (fractionally) because women are supposed to be proportioned differently than men.

This is an interesting take on the topic (Are Women's Body Proportions Different From Men's? -) What is says it that proportionally women tend to have longer torsos and shorter legs, but are also more comfortable riding a little more upright because their centers of mass are further forward when they lean forward, putting more stress on the shoulder, arms, and hands.

So, the shorter top tube makes for a more upright riding posture, which most women (supposedly) find more comfortable.

Some women's bikes have shorter top tubes compared to seat tubes, for a given frame size. if you have a short torso and long legs, a "woman's" bike might fit you without needing to resort to a a very short stem which you might need on a "men's" bike. Or not.

As a group almost everybody is "average" and individually almost no one is "average."

Best thing to do is either sit on the bike and get real good at reading geometry charts.
