Essentially, women want what men want: to be treated with respect and dignity, to be taken seriously, and to be offered the same quality products and services.
That has not always been the case in the cycling business. It is, however, ALWAYS the case here at El Camino Bike Shop. Along with Trek Bikes we are committed to finding the right products for women of ALL LEVELS.
We take a woman's bike fit and sizing very seriously and display as many saddles designed for women as for men as well as seeking out the appropriate sized and shaped handlebars and stems. A woman's comfort, safety, and level of interest in cycling are always taken into consideration when helping to find the optimum position during a fitting.
We do not try to "make do" with products that just aren't appropriate. In addition to women's specific saddles, handlebars, and stems, we stock a wide variety of women's shorts, tops, jackets, shoes, undergarments, and gloves. When talking with our suppliers and road reps, we remind them that not every woman is a size 8 or 10 and 5' 5" tall. So, there is no such thing as "one-size-fits-all"!
When discussing a new single bike with a woman, we address our questions to HER and try to answer her questions without assuming anything.
Finally, we try to convey to women our love of the sport and of our work. We honor and respect women in our business.
