Hi Bshipper, welcome to BF, you can surf around the various forums to find the ones that best help you make your decision on a bike. Keep the Craig's List for your area in mind, good, solid buys are out there, just take your time and find a bike that fits you properly. I'll offer that you had best avoid the bike shaped objects that places like Wal-Mart and such sell, they will self destruct in short order and their fit is at best a crap shoot. The Local Bike Shops (LBS in BF speak) are another place to search out used bikes, find one that will listen to your needs and budget, not try and sell you a bike they need to move off the floor.
Best of luck on your search for you and your wife's bikes and on the upcoming arrival. Glad that you joined us here.
