I read an article that stated its a throwback to when all women in the U.S. wore dresses. not sure how true that is but that is what the article said.
It is true, the design made it easier for their skirts. But that doesn't make it a women's bike. In the rest of the world a "women's" bike is called a step through bike. It's not just ridden by women, plenty of men ride them too. Especially the elderly. It's much easier to get on and off. So the rest of the world describes them by their form and function. We make it gender specific. I don't understand it. But then the rest of the world, including what we consider the third world, doesn't think twice about having a woman as President. For us, it's uncharted territory.
Quote from googs185 :
That's not true. The downtube goes lower than on a men's bike on a women's bike.
And that doesn't make it a women's bike for the rest of the world. Look at my post. In this specific case, it's not even a step through bike.

I TU because I'm actually looking for one for my gf. Funny because I just came back from the big K with a mongoose men's bike. Not a great deal on my half, however I have been needing one and had the points from the tv deal to use before sunday. Did pick up helmets for $7 bucks each though. I must say, I do not shop at Kmart very often, but there is a lot of stuff there that is worth checking out, deal-wise.
I think it's funny all these people who come to make a negative comment about the quality. I would believe it if everyone agreed. However, SD way of life, if you can return it, buy now think later. For the people who don't use bikes everyday, I think these will be fine.
Brings me back to my preteen years, with my cheap huffy. That thing was a beast, and lasted me for years. And I rode the s*!@ outta that thing, even crashed it numerous times.
Thanks op. I will check out tomorrow!
