My wife recently purchased a Trek 7100 for the same reasons as the wife of Peddler. She is just a little over 5'8", she has the long legs, and maybe not so long torso but she wanted to ride in the upright position. However she went for the 17.5" frame. She didn't care to spend the extra dollars for the shocks. But generally I say it's still a good bike for what you need it for. Make sure that the 20" is the right fit, your wife may want to try a size smaller for comparison.
Only complaint my wife has is the choice of colors is so limited, only one color scheme is available. I know color shouldn't be a determing factor but it would be nice to have brighter colors availabe and have a choice. Hmm....think more bikes would be sold if there was a color choice with flashier colors and schemes? What a concept!!!
