Let her pick the bike she likes the best - within reason.
Ah, but there is another reason why I'm trying to steer her clear of presta- my road morph-g is set up for my schraeders. Though the pump can be set-up in either configuration, see my sig line for why I'd prefer not to bother.
And I do plan on letting her select her own. I want her to like the bike, so that she'll actually follow through on her idea of joining my on rides. I need a buddy as my eyesight gets worse (but I'm not to the point where I have to consider being the stoker of a tandem...yet).
