Hello, I thought I would post this here also other than beginner section.
I'm trying to buy a bike for my wife to get her into the sport, or at least so she can ride in park with me once in a while.
I saw these marin bikes on sale and thought I would grab her one so she can get some feel for riding.
Our budget is pretty small and she's not really interested in going to lbs to check bikes out, plus last store we visited the cheapest womens bike they had was $480+tax.

She is 5'2 and 103lbs and looking at Marin sizing chart 13'' is suggested.

Yes, that should work size-wise. It doesn't sound like she is too interested, but hopefully she will give it a try. Make sure it is fun, and start with short easy rides.

She's not interested enough to go out shopping for a bike.if I'll show her pic of a bike online she will let me know she likes The color or not :)
I'm wondering if 15'' frame will still be OK for her, I might get it for $100 less.
