A few weeks back we started to talk about consigning some used bikes here. We decided that if we did it we'd have to make sure that the bikes were something we could stand behind, bikes we'd be excited to pair with a new owner, bike that make sense for women's bodies. 

And then, low and behold, this pretty little number showed up at our door. Meet our first consigned bicycle...
