OUR FAIR LADY
Retrospec Siddhartha-7 Lady's bikes are hand-built for the commuter lifestyle. With its lightweight, tig-welded, steel frame and its advanced component set, this step-thru bicycle is ideal for riding around town, cruising on the beach boardwalk, or squeezing in a little exercise during your morning and afternoon commutes.


FROM THE ARCHIVES
While the step-thru frame was originally constructed for the 19th century damsel, what with their cumbersome attire making it nearly impossible to straddle just about anything, 21st century gals can certainly benefit from this traditional lady’s bike. The angle of the top bar allows for easy mounting and dismounting in addition to making riding in just about any kind of apparel (be it skirts, skorts, or kilts) more comfortable.


THE BUILD
The steel tubing and progressive frame geometry are designed for an upright riding position allowing for a softer ride than you may be accustomed to on your typical city bike. In addition to being easier on your back, the upright handlebars allow riders to keep eyes on the road. The Shimano Altus 7-Speed Drivetrain is perfect for longer distance riding and makes pedaling on hills easier. The shifting mechanism is controlled by a grip-twister that allows you to shift gears without sacrificing control of the handlebars for your convenience and safety.


THE ACCESSORIES
Our seven-speed women’s bike also includes front and rear fenders, a vintage-style bullet headlamp, a mid-century bell, a rear rack, and a sealed bottom bracket. Add a basket and a Toto dog and you’re on your merry way to find some lions and tigers and bears.


We strongly suggest that you take your bike to a professional bicycle mechanic to be built and/or checked out. Incorrect assembly of your bike could result in premature wear and/or failure of individual components. The brakes and derailleurs are not yet set up and need to be properly adjusted in order to stop and shift correctly.
