The idea of mens vs womens bikes is rather pointless, and dates back to the time when it wasn't socially acceptable for women to show their legs. Today a womans bike can mean a few different things:

  1. a step-through frame(w/o top tube) and an upright riding position
  2. a "girly" paint scheme, and a slightly shorter reach between saddle and handle bar, either achieved by a shorter stem, or by actually redesigning the frame.
  3. in rare cases, a womans bike will come fitted with smaller wheels, to maintain the same stance and ride characteristics as the men's bike, but adapted for the usually somewhat smaller woman rider.

The standard diamond frame tarpon is nominally a mans bike(which doesn't mean a thing if it fits you) while the tarpon step-thru is a "woman's" bike, which doesn't mean a thing either if you prefer a more upright riding position.
