24 inch tire hybrids?

My daughter has been bitten by the cycling bug really bad. She insists that I take her on rides. Of course, I think this is a great development. She has grown enough that she needs a 24 inch tire bike. I have seen the Trek 220, but it is a mountain bike. Does anyone make a bike that is closer to a hybrid? I would like to have something maybe a little lighter and with smooth rolling tires. I think a small road bike may be too much for her to handle.

I saw one just the other day - also a Trek. The catch was the $429 price tag. Sorry, I don't remember the model #.

Trek has a 24" wheeled FX series hybrid, but a bit pricey, but highly resellable after she grows out of it. I bought a 13" frame Trek 3500 for my son last June, only to have him grow out of it in a year. I bought it for $250, then sold it for $155 and kept the computer and seat bag for his new 16" frame Specialized Rockhopper.

Check out BMX cruisers, they are a lightweight 24" rigid bike.
