Long skirt frame/parts/tips?
What frame/parts is most suitable when building a bike for someone who gonna be ridin' with long skirt? Preferable vintage looking.
While the classic looking womens frames have a lower toptube, witch I understand is for this purpose, the toptube is still quite high.
I tend to think foldies might be the best, as the tube is way lower (or looks like it is anyway)
(note, loose cloths tend to catch onto the "quick screws")
And well, chainguard.. is there any differences? maybe how much it cover, some might over both sides of the chain?
Mudguards, well as with all other bikes, either you have them or you dont.
Anything else I might wanna think of?

is what you need I think I've seen them for sale somewhere as an after market item, you need a mudguard too obviously.
Lots more stuff and idea on line.
EDIT: Sorry did not read what forum this was on, forgot all about that.

Cheapest and eaiset solution: use a clothes peg to peg the skirt up out of the way. If teh rider is worried about flashing too much leg or her bloomers, she can pull on a pair of leggings or some shorts underneath.
A peg means you can ride any type of frame at any speed you like!
