A womans bike ACTUALLY for a woman. The geometry is designed with a smaller torso in mind. I tested plenty of womens bikes in search of a good fit. This bike is small not only in frame size, but they way the handle bars are designed I can reach the shifters and the breaks. If you have felt like you can't find a bike that fits you try the amira. Great road feel, stiff, but the carbon still soaks up the bumps. Acceleration is unreal. LOVE IT. The only con is since it is so small ( i ride the 48cm) its hard to get your water bottles to fit right. A minor inconvenience I can handle. If you are looking for a womans bike with out sacrifice this is the bike.
I absolutely adore this bike. I recently upgraded from my entry-level steel bike, and the difference is unreal. It only weighs about 18 lbs (as I have it outfitted--I switched the wheels to Rovals from the Mavics, carbon bottle cages, etc.), is very nimble, control is awesome, and you can really *feel* the quality of the components and frame as you're riding. Plus, it's just gorgeous. The blue and carbon look awesome together - feminine without being overly 'girly'. I am SO happy with this bike!
