I've tried the Grand Canyon WMN AL 5.9, one of the women bikes by Canyon.
I live in the city, 40 minutes away from the nearest mountains and I found this bike a bomb.
For 800 € I found a lightweight and handy bike that allows me to train on the road and dirt road.
The 10-speed Shimano Deore XT is precise and silent, ensuring the ideal choice for any type of road. On the handlebar there is also locking the fork: I have never used it! I would have preferred a reverb.
The fork worked well, but I did not trust the setting of high and low speeds.
The only small defect in the Grand Canyon WMN AL 5.9 is the front gear cable: with mud and branches it is dangerous, it would be enough to move it.
Overall I liked this bike: it's all within reach and advice for girls who want to train during the week in town or on dirt.
