    I'd rather see what is causing the sore sit-bone pain. What saddle is it? How long have you had the saddle? How good is your overall bike fit? Did you get a professional fitting?

    I've only ever bought bikes I've completely fell in love with. Maybe you should test something that is not quite so similar?

    Jamis makes steel road bikes in men's and women's. Called the Quest,...

    I'm iffy on gearing, at best. I live at sea-level, and not much applies. That's why I thought a frameset would be better, but that can be a pain. :)

    FWIW, Trek has great women's bikes. Dialed in,...

    Try one of the Pinarello Easy-fit models, too. Not sure which model, as they change them from year to year, but they actually make very good women's bikes. Easy Fit have higher head tubes and shorter...

    One more thing on fit, the Ruby felt best, but cramped. At least a little?

    Ruby's have high head tubes. The head tube height up front may have made the bike feel bigger than it was. Also, the...

    I've only bought bikes that I loved from all aspects. Never bought one I was unsure of.

    No idea what is going on with the handlebars. Bars are easy to replace, but it sounds like something else is...

    This Raleigh with 105 components is upright, within budget, and blue. :)

    You might need scaled down handlebars, like a lot of women, but it doesn't affect bike size, really. (or, well, just reread what you wrote. Maybe not!).

    For an offset versus straight seat post,...

    Any of the components will be fine. Everyone always says buy the best you can afford. Definitely avoid over-spending. It's too bad they don't have a rim-brake Tiagra model. That would be a better...

    This bike is also very relaxed, and the entry price at $660.00 is a lot lower than Specialized.

    I'm 5'7" with long legs and arms and a short torso, and prefer men's bikes because they tend to be 'stiffer' and have more power transfer (so less sluggish). In most brands, the max size women's bike...

    The op has a 25 inch inseam, Oak.

    And if I wanted to be spoken to like that, I'd post on road bike review.

    Fwiw, I have a lot of issues due to crank length.

    My last road bike was a Synapse. Great frameset! But whatever you find will be perfect. :)

    The problem is that the 'r' isn't industry standard nomenclature. So you can't tell the relative quality at all. Most bike companies make a lot of 10 k carbon bikes. Some have higher end bikes with...
