Until a certain moment, the joy of two-wheeled movement was inaccessible to women. In general, there was a bicycle, but two-wheeled – no.
Actually, the reason is simple and banal – skirts. Ladies of the Victorian era were stiff and clad in armor from head to toe. Yes, and the bikes of those times are strange enough – you really had to be a circus performer to climb it.
So it would remain until someone (I could not find for sure) guessed to change the design of the frame.
And then it went, went. In 1896, American human rights activist Susan B. Anthony uttered the following words: “A bicycle has made more women to emancipate than anything else in this world. I rejoice every time I see a woman on a bicycle. ”
And although now it’s completely different times and a completely different fashion, in which there is no particular need for such a frame design,
but a phenomenon called “ladies’ bike” remained. Interestingly, even in the USSR in which there were no ladies, and there were only comrades, such bicycles were called precisely ladies’, not women’s.
There is no doubt that all bicycle manufacturers, regardless of nationality, without fail paid attention to this area
Please note the complete and correct, in addition to the planted frame, ladies bike set: chain and rear wheel protection.
The manufacturers of the model industry were not left without this look.

However, they are not alone. Composition from Korean SOL Model continues and develops this theme.
And even if it’s not even a cyclist, but a woman on a bicycle. Although yes, the Germans also need to be added.
Their compatriots from Legend Productions went even further and embodied in a resin a frame from the Italian erotic movie “Minx”,
in Italian, Monella, from 1998 in the set
