Do women need different bikes? Ask at AvantiPlus Blenheim about the women specific Avanti and Scott bikes, clothing, saddles, helmets. As when it comes to cycling, on the whole women are different to men - especially physically! On average women have shorter torsos, shorter arms, and longer legs than a similar sized man. Shoulders tend to be narrower, hips tend to be wider and hands and feet tend to be smaller. And, yes, the sit bones are wider too!
These differences mean bikes for women need to be designed and made in a specific way to ensure good comfort, fit and performance - for all kinds of female riders.
How to get the most out of our bike shop, looking to buy a bike, do your research: it helps if you know what you're looking for. Talk to friends, take out one off our demo bikes, hire a bicycle. Read bicyle books, see their reviews on Avanti, Scott bikes mountain, road, commuting, fitness bikes.
Decide first what type of riding you think you may be doing, ask our friendly staff questions i.e. what type of components and tyres the bike has also ask what accessories come with the bike, also what you will need, helmet, gloves, glasses pump, drink bottle, cages, multi tool kit, comfortable clothing etc.
