After due consideration, I went with the Trek Pure. Mine is the metallic pink. I thought about going with the gold, but what the hell, the pink is much more fun. I like it a lot - especially the lightness of the frame, because, damn, it BARELY fit into Baby - it's those high "comfort" handlebars; they almost did us in. That, and the fact that the nice young man at the bike shop was apparently as spatially-challenged as I am, because neither of us spotted the issue when we struggled with it. We loaded it with barely enough clearance to close the hatch, and he said he hoped I had help on the other end to figure out how to get it out again. I didn't. I got home and, yeah, at first it was a challenge. I wiggled it this way, and that way, and then the lightbulb (must be a fluorescent, because it took a second to come on) in my brain flickered to life, and I could see the very easy solution: lift the rear wheel over the wheel well bulge! And because it's such a nice, light bike, I could do this single-handedly with no real effort. I don't know what the bike weighs, but it's not significantly heavier than my purse.
And of course, I had to go for a ride immediately. I have to say it was a little weird - this was my first time on a bike in a few years, and these comfort bikes really are different. Riding in this upright position will take a little getting used to, but I do agree it's very comfortable. But I felt "wobblier" sitting so straight, like my dad just took off my training wheels, and I also keep hearing the theme music of the Wicked Witch of the West in my head. But I think I'll get used to the riding position, and the theme music will stop eventually. It is an EXTREMELY comfortable bike, just different from any I've had before.
Edited: Oh, and an unexpected benefit of the upright riding position hit me after my ride. I have some sort of nerve damage that has never officially been diagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome in my right arm. When I ride a bike that requires any sort of arm pressure on the hand grips, I am sore later. Sitting upright, this wasn't a factor at all. That alone makes it worth getting used to the "wobblier" feeling when steering; I'll adjust to that.
I had the nice young man at the bike shop add a rear rack just in case I want to bungee something now and then, and a water bottle holder, because, yeah, Florida, hot. Otherwise didn't go nuts on accessories - a front basket really would make that Wicked Witch of the West thing too close. I'd be constantly watching for tornadoes, and obviously I can't turn against Little Dogs, Too! I found a very good lock and an inexpensive little handlebar bag just to hold my phone, etc., at Walmart. And next week Daylight Savings Time begins, and I can go for a nice, relaxing ride after work every day. Awesome.
Baby update: All is still well and on schedule. The last ultrasound showed that she's "practicing breathing," which the tech said means she's really close to launch. Sometime between now and next Friday, I will be a grandmother. A grandmother who just bought herself a pink bicycle.
