What would improve 'Light-weight ladies bike'? I don't understand the answers which it's getting: they're not actionable.
They are theoretical (e.g. "Of course, a smaller bike, with 24" wheels, say, or even 26" would be proportionally lighter", and "I'd go with 26" wheels"), or negative (e.g. "I don't think such a machine exists" and "there are no practical solutions at this point in time"), or not an answer (e.g. "not the lightest").
Am I right in reading that I can't get a light frame, intended for smaller wheels? No light fenders? Not for any price?
They don't stock what I'm asking for at my LBS. If it's not commonly available off the shelf (and I don't see why it isn't) then can it be put together from components? A frame, wheels, drive, maybe flat or raised bars from somewhere? Ought I look for an LBS who can order some or other parts from I don't where and assemble it?
Or is the answer country-specific, e.g. is there a French bike that would suit?
