Planned use will be parks and towpaths. No major hills or huge distances She’s 5’2. I was thinking: – Inbred slot dropout – SS for simplicity 32-16 – 26 inch – Kenda small block 8 – Ladies saddle Should come in at 3-400 squid I reckon. Any thoughts? Other suggestions? Cheers, Dave Posted 4 years ago seadog101Subscriber Darn, I thought this was going to be about swapping one for the other…. However, despite my disappointment, your plan seems pretty sound. Have you thought about possibly getting an Alfine 8 speed squeezed into the budget? Posted 4 years ago mikewsmithSubscriber What does she reckon about singlespeed? Gears are quite useful especially when getting back into it. Posted 4 years ago JoeGSubscriber Does your wife have a beard? If not, then why a singlespeed? Give her some gears! Posted 4 years ago warrenmosbyMember Wow… Its great..!! Your wife will ride and you will sit behind her.. 🙂 Posted 4 years ago mosSubscriber Try to get some 165mm cranks. My OH is same size & this seemed to make a big difference comfortwise. Posted 4 years ago Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) The topic ‘Bike for Wife…..’ is closed to new replies.
