I got my girl a trek 6000 for $650. Shes about the same size, so the dart 3's don't do much for her. I think I need to adjust them now that I'm around. But all in all she likes it, just wants a "nicer" seat, i told her I need to take her on some trails I use and she wont use it as much

just remember she wants to START riding, so that means they still expect something to sit on haha. I checked the specialized out for mine too, but then I randomly got a deal on the trek for it being an 08 and she got a christmas present. If I remember right theyre very similar

There are two stickies at the top of the forum-- one titled "what bike to buy the girlfriend". You might start there, then come back and ask questions if you still need more info.

Just a suggestion...

Check the stickies in this forum. You can also use the search function for talk on the Myka and other models. There is some very good advice on buying a gift bike, and how to get someone into the sport that's new to it. One tip, don't get a big cushy seat, get a women specific saddle.

So do some research on the topic, sorry but it gets rather redundant here, constantly the same question from you guys over and over again. It is like going to weight weenies and asking them to help you lighten your 34 lb bike, they have stickies and other posts for that kind of question, you would not complain if they directed you to them, why complain when we do?
