OK I feel bad making his post, buying don't even know where to start for her. I've only built my bikes from scratch, so I wouldn't know sure to get a built bike for her... so what style bike should we be looking for. Also I think she would like a mountain bike, hardtail. She doesn't like my banshee scream feel, but like my old jamis and my banshee scirocco.

Depending on what size she needs bikesdirect had a pretty good deal on the '11 GT Avalanche 3.0 Womens. I cant get on there at work, so I dont know if they still have any or not. Finding a good deal on a womens specific mtb is going to be hard as the amount of bikes available is limited. After new years we'll most likely be selling my wifes and buying her a '11 or '12 Revel 1W.

You could just give her one of those two bikes.

Since she likes them, you can also use them as reference bikes for buying a bike online. Try to match effective top tube length. If you want to get more refined, the head angle has a big influence on ride feel, and at the extremes of handlebar height adjustment, the head tube length becomes important.
