I am curious to know what the ladies in the TR community are riding at the moment. My girlfriend is looking to upgrade her entry level aluminium road bike to something mid range, light weight carbon and without disc brakes.
I started looking in to bikes in the £2,000 or less range and quickly noticed that women don’t really have a whole load of choice. The bike industry kinda narrows the market to make you choose one of only a few options. She hated the gender stereotyped women’s bikes that look “awful.” So that was out the window.
I know that Specialized and Trek have more or less done away with their women’s specific bikes. Are unisex bikes such as the TCR the Canyon Ultimate genuine options for ladies.
If there is anyone who knows a female cyclist and what they chose, it would be very useful in helping decide.
