This Halcyon Camino Trekking Bike been designed as a Mens Bike but if you have a larger build it could be suitable for a lady rider also. Some of the considerations for Ladies Bikes are that they have a lower top tube, this assumes that woman is wearing a skirt or dress. The level of the tube also makes mounting and dismounting much easier and safer.
Ladies bicycles have been designed with the body structure in mind. For example the seat and handlebars are closer than a men’s bicycle. The brake levers will also be a shorter distance from the bars due to smaller hands. The seat (or saddle) generally is wider and has more padding.
PLEASE NOTE: Some assembly will be required, full instructions are provided in the box. You will be required to do the following; fit handlebars, fit front wheel, adjust brakes, adjust gears, fit pedals, fit saddle (pre mounted to seat post) and inflate the tyres.
Please read all instructions first prior to attempting to assemble, disregarding these could result in injury.

BIKE BUYING GUIDE:
When buying a bike there are many considerations you need to think of before you make your purchase. With the ever growing popularity of cycling the bike trade has increased. This huge demand has seen manufacturers adapting their bicycle designs to suit a wider range of people and their travelling needs.
One of the common questions you need to ask yourself is “What will I be using my bike for”? How you use your bike is going to be vital in the decision you make. Most modern bikes today are ideal and versatile for the everyday use, but understanding your key goals will make your ride much easier.
Long Distance Commuting (travelling to work, shops or for weekend fun):
If you intend to use your bike for getting to work every day then you will be looking for something that is quick and comfortable. The best option for this is the Hybrid Bike, which is suited for roads, trails and pathways. This style of bike gives the rider an upright position, giving comfort all round.
Short Distance Commuting (travelling to work or shops):
For quick or short journeys, such as popping down to your local shop the Roadster Bike is the ideal cycle for you. This classic bike gives you an upright and gracious position. This is really for the short journeys so if you intend to use for long periods of time a Hybrid Bike would be more suitable.
Alternatively if you are making short trips with a mix of public transport (i.e. train ride) you may want to consider the practicalities. In very busy cities mixing your transportation can be space limiting therefore we would suggest a Folding Bike. Simply collapse the foldable bike down in just a few minutes, take on the means of transport and even take into your office, as they really do fold up that small!
Outdoor Sports (exploring the trails and off road tracks):
If you want to explore more than just a trail and discover the countryside or you just want to get creative in the bike park then a Mountain Bike will be a suitable option. Mountain biking is quite a popular design as the upright and wide position give extra control and comfort on the terrain. The fat tyres aid in grip, while the large range of gears deals with the changing ground surface and the powerful brakes help to deal with the conditions.
Easy Leisure (travelling on roads with little effort):
One of the latest designs in bike technology is the Electric Bike. This has helped many to enjoy cycling while not pushing themselves passes their fitness levels. Although they can be used just like a normal bicycle their motor technology can help the rider overcome difficult conditions, such as hills or moving quickly away from traffic lights.
