I have sold folding bikes for nearly two decades. I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable about folders. However, I am still learning about women's taste on folding bikes. Guys love the full suspension bike, it stylish, comfortable, and well thought out. Women like the full suspension, however they seem to prefer smaller wheel bikes like our 16" wheel mini. I never understood why women love the mini, but they do.
Overall women should look at 16" wheel models, unfortunately our mini is discontinued, but there are many other small folders out there.
