#!markdown It misses the point to be offended at the emotional reactions people have had to this. I see legit reasons that underlie the satire, and the offence to it. The range of body size and proportions that women and men have overlap substantially, but certainly not entirely. Because of that, bikes designed in the absence of serious consideration for women still work great for many of them. And, I think it's easy to make assumptions, especially for men, that women don't need anything else. Many don't of course. There are limits to the utility of designing things around the size and tastes of most men, and what this article might not really acknowledge is that we do live in a world where the default focus is on typical men.
