The mid-level FSRs (or whatever they call the wimmen's version) have been perennial favorites.
Oh, and Giant makes some good dual squishy bikes too.
She likes the Specialized bikes. It's all really going to come down to what fit her the best. Thanks for the suggestions.

BTW, (more) great pics.
Thanks for the input. She's been eyeing the Myka ever since I said I'd buy her another bike. She asked me if she needed the full-suspension and I wasn't sure what to tell her since I love my rigid MTB. I just want her to be happy.
I'm really going to miss all this amazing single track here in Prescott.
