Velo Mamma

So, will somebody please help me convince Mrs. Kyality that she should get this bike? We've been investigating ladies bikes for a few months now and we've hit a bit of a brick wall. Growing up in a bike family, you kind of know that a decent bike is definitely gonna be in the $400+ range. Otherwise, you’re relegated to a big box solution at the Targets of the world. But when searching out a stylish women’s bike for a gal/mamma who hasn’t ridden for a long time and isn’t so sure if a new bike would even be ridden for more than a few times a month, a $400 - $700 price tag can be a definite barrier of entry. I just think this Electra Townie Euro 8D in Cadet Blue would be a rad rod for the Mrs. to cruise on despite it being bucks deluxe.

Just bought my wife a beach cruiser for Mother's Day from ChubbysCruisers.com. She loves it.

There's also the wrinkle that buying a crappy (and HEAVY) big-box-bike would probably hinder the chances of said bike being ridden.

We went on a ride on the in-laws' twin Townies this morning... I think we have a winner! Man, those bikes are radical even Mrs. Kyality had to admit it.

I just ordered this exact bike for my wife this morning. Awesome bike!
