Dolce on its way

After much deliberation re a second bike (for a little bit of speed and bling, and to keep alongside the commuter), I went for a Specialized Dolce. I've never bought a female-specific bike before. I'd gone to the shop to look at the Allez, but felt a bit overstretched on it. The Dolce felt comfortable. Am picking it up this week.

Just wondering... anyone out there got one? Good things to say about it?


  • Mrs miketherower has one - great bike.

    bit late if someone happened to say "don't, no, you mustn't, it's a pile of crap, rides like a turd, looks disgusting, turns you into a moron".

    the dolce looks great, as it happens, i am sure you will be thrilled to bits with your new steed. i've seen a few on the club run and they look cleaner than the giant woman specific frames.

    Thanks. Wouldn't be too late if it were to be badly maligned. Not getting it into my hands for a couple of days, so there's still time! Nice, though, to hear a couple of good comments.
  • My partner has one. She likes it a lot, good acceleration. Makes her look like a godess IMO

    They've got a good reputation, I'm sure you'll like it. Three of my friends have got the Dolce.

    I recently got a Specialized women specific bike (Ruby Expert) and I can't sing its praises enough.

    To be honest, it's hard to go wrong with a Specialized, providing the bike's the right size for you.
