Second week, I would almost die of exhaustion from riding meters. So if whatever "the industry" has done so far to attract women into the sport and hence to their brands hasn't worked so well as evidenced by lower participation numbersyou'd think the industry would try some other things. The seat height should also be adjusted so that your legs extend almost to the point that they lock but not so far that they actually do lock. The biggy is knobbly tyres if you have them - these actually soak up a lot of energy. I don't agree with all your points The more comfortable you are the more enjoyable riding is and the more you will want to do it; that is what I would focus on.

Women seem to gravitate toward a cooperative model. But if you get new tires, your current bike should be fine. Never wanted to be a bicycle seat till now! My ramblings really targeted the specific sport of DH because of Anita's comments in the article. So if you were a purely self-interested major MTB company exec looking at a particular market, say the US, or Europe - where will you find a ready pool of new participants?
