    Full suspension Mans Vs Woman’s what is the difference?

    i have never really looks at womans bikes before so not notice the massive difference in price….

    i am looking at bikes for the woman(wife) and i am shocked by the price difference

    take the Ghost Lanao 2, the basic full sus bike for girls £779 NEW, for the same basic spec mens start at £1200.

    also to look at the bike they looks the same, is someone taking the piss out of men or am i missing something, if it was the other way round the woman’s right army would be out.

    I didn’t see your message, no.

    I can’t comment on the old price because I can’t see it but CRC are showing the RRP at £1299. I expect it’s cheaper because they have stock to shift.

    if it didnt have the stupid bend in the frame i would have snapped one up for myself. its not top spec but for the price its very good.

    why do they have that stupid frame, its from a age gone bye. now days girls bike have a different geometry because they have longer legs… then they put a stupid bending it for the lady’s to step over easier.
