Hello

Thinking about sneaking our and buying my Wife a new frame and adding a bunch of bits to it.

Question is which one. I've been looking at Ribble and Planet-X and figure something cheapish (£300??) and hopefully steel. Most impotent for her of course would be colour (therfeore Carbon or ALU works too). 2nd thing is which size. She is very similar size to me but aren't "woman specific" frames generally smaller therefore I should be looking for a size down from me?

Most of the riding she will be doing will be under 50KM with a few light sportives and hopefully doing more as she gets fitter.

Thanks
