@qms: You have an excellent memory!
Yes, she did, but she also said it felt like there wasn't enough room for her knees. For the sake of simplicity, I just said the size wasn't right, which actually is what she thought the problem was. (She knows about as much about bikes as I do. LOL Well, I know a bit more now only because I'm a good reader.)
I chatted with an LLB bike person at the time I began looking at bikes who said it was made by Schwinn. I'm trying to get the bike bug to bite my friend again so we can ride together sometime, when I finally learn to *ride* (loosely speaking) my new bike. The Trek shop was so very nice to me that I was sort of trying to steer her that way, but I don't want to steer her wrong esp if the LLB bike is one of the "bike shop" type Schwinns. The LLB bike was kind of a pain for her and her hubby, because they had to pay extra shipping, reassemble the bike, then disassemble it, pack it up, and return it, although the return shipping was free. Also, the one in the link is offered only in sizes XS (which she ordered) and M, no S. One of the fit guidelines (height) shows a gap that should be "S", but then according to the inseam guide, there is no gap. ?? I can't recall which bike she ordered, but it was one of the comfort bikes they sell.
Thanks for all your help with my many questions! Hope you've had a great 4th.
@paul: Thanks for the links. The first one looks just like it!
