After seeing this question, I realized we've had a few questions about fitting and finding bikes for women. Have created a womens-bikes tag.

Before we start applying this to older questions, can anyone think of a better tag name, or are we good with this one?

I'd personally prefer something that doesn't imply that women's bikes are the exception to the rule. And "women-specific-design", as has been pointed out, is a term for Trek bikes.


Based on comments below, I've retagged the three questions previously tagged as womens-bikes to women-specific. Please, everybody feel free to retag other questions as appropriate. That would include bikes, clothing, and other issues. Have linked to this page from the tag wiki.

why do you need the -bikes part on a site called bicycles.stackexchange.com?

Perhaps would be more appropriate?

    [womens-bikes] as opposed to womens' saddles and womens' clothing. But I take your point, the tag sounds a bit meta-ish as it is; how about just [women-specific], borrowing a page from Trek? (Whether it's a bike or a pair of shorts or whatever can be covered by other tags.) Commented Jun 22, 2011 at 3:54

    @neil I still like [womens] since it would certainly be [saddles] [womens] and [clothing] [womens]. The bicycle part is implied by the fact of the URL in the address bar... Commented Jun 22, 2011 at 4:27

    I think I prefer womens-specific over womens, since to my ear it implies something closer to the right thing. Most cycling stuff is unisex, with a few things that are specifically designed for men or women.
