Just make sure that the spouse's bike isn't the "standard Women's bike". Try riding hers, just to check the ease of use, compared to yours.

I know what you mean and I did check that out. Women's bikes used to be really heavy and clumsy compared to mens'. I worked on a lot of friends' bikes many years ago and always noticed the performance differences between mens' and womens' bikes. I don't know if that's still true, in general, but these two bikes are equally heavy and clumsy. And I let SGSpouse pick them out. I simply rode them both after the fact and agreed. She actually had picked out a non-gender 32" bike originally about a month ago, but it was just before we were leaving for the Netherlands and I didn't get a chance to check them out. Once we returned, she went back and decided on the bikes we ended up with.

The real test will be how I feel about these bikes in about 6 months or so . . . time for maintenance.
