What kind of riding are the two of you planning to do? Roads? Trails? Commuting? Touring? Fitness? Shopping/cargo? Miles per day? Hills?/
Also, what is the rider ages/weights/fitness levels?
My vote would be for something like the Madone WSD
, while you still are on the MTB
I suppose there are a number of factors to choose the perfect bike. The beach cruisers are great for their simplicity, but I think they seem like a monstrosity. Most of my rides are 10+ miles each way, frequently as much as a 40 mile RT, and sometimes longer, and I wouldn't want a wife/GF to have a worse bike than mine. And, I'd have serious problems pedalling a single speed beach cruiser 40+ miles.
