    I’m going to get my missus her first bike in about 15 years. 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?

    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?

    What does she reckon about singlespeed? Gears are quite useful especially when getting back into it.

    Does your wife have a beard? If not, then why a singlespeed?

    Give her some gears!


    Wow… Its great..!! Your wife will ride and you will sit behind her.. 🙂

    Try to get some 165mm cranks. My OH is same size & this seemed to make a big difference comfortwise.
