What about your wife, has she been fitted?
When my wife was interested in getting a bike, I told her we had to go test ride some different bikes. She just wanted to get any old one! Once we rode several different ones, she realized the importance of doing this. Each manufacturer builds their bikes to what "they" consider are correct porportions for each frame size. This may or may not match your wife's proportions. My wife ended up with a bike about 180 degrees to the bike we first looked for.
