This is a 700c-wheeled bike,

There appears to be some confusion over the spec, the bike pictured looks to be the 7000E Ladies 2009 model, which has front suspension and trigger shifters, but the specs look to be for the men's 7000 2007 model, which has a rigid fork and twist shifters.

According to one of the comments, this is definitely a ladies bike, and you will need to be 6'+ for this to fit!

the women's bike came in 14, 16, 18.5". http://www.trekbikes.com/uk/en/bikes/2007/archive/7000wsd

The men's bike in 15, 17.5", 20", 22.5".

The bike pictured on their website is I think the 2009 ladies bike, but it's not what they are selling - what they are selling is the men's XL.

Totally confused now. I get that the size indicates it's the men's version but what if you order and the women's version turns up at the store? I guess you could always change your mind?!

Rang Evans - they confirmed that it's definitely a women's bike and the picture is correct.

OP please correct your description.

Great price for whoever it fits.

ok, if that's true, what they are selling is actually the 2009 7000 WSD E. The E is upgraded a fair bit from the basic model: all Shimano components, front suspension, and trigger rather than twist shifters.

So better deal, but probably for fewer people!

Ok, rand Evans again and insisted on getting the right info about the bike. Chap said that the picture on the website is correct i.e. the bike will come with front suspension etc but the size will correspond to the equivalent women's sizes for the bike. In other words, the description and the sizes on the website are incorrect. Therefore, it is a women's bike but just not as big!

Alas, the search goes on :(

simply following this thread with no idea about the pro's and con's. I see that the frame that dudedude links to in post #9 is called a "step through" rather than a woman's one. Is there a difference? Is the former a unisex style that would therefore be available in all sizes? I only ask as seeking to further my own knowledge rather than anything else. As said before though, hot deal for whomsoever the bike fits, cinders!

No a step-through is (nearly always) a woman's frame. But women's frames are not always step-through.

Basically men are deemed to be wearing shorts/trousers and capable of straddling a high top tube, whereas women are possibly wearing skirts/dresses and need a lower tube. On more sporty bikes, the manufactuers may not even bother making a step-through, as they are more likely to be worn with lycra, rather than normal clothes.

The step-through design is slightly heavier, but on this kind of bike it makes no difference whatsoever, because it's already a fairly slow/heavy/leisurely bike, not a racer. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Step-through_frame for more.

The manufacturers claim they make 'WSD' or Women-specific bikes. If you compare the geometry of the men's and WSD, even on a relatively expensive bike, you'll see there's very little difference at all http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/road/fx/76fx/http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/women/bike_path/76fxwsd/ and on this bike even less.

So what you will have is a more practical step-through frame (=women's), and also a wide, women's saddle designed for child-bearing hips. So it's perfectly ok as a men's bike, especially if you don't like doing the 'straddle', but you'd want to buy a new saddle (about £20), as the ladies saddle won't be comfortable.

Thank you dudedude for thus furthering my education. So much to learn, so little time! I'd offer some rep but I see that is no more in the Brave New World so hope that you can settle for just the heat! 8)
