    You are soooo right!! She tried a few different bikes, and I really wanted her to pick the slightly more expensive one (better components) but in the end she chose the one that felt right to her (of...

    After trying out several bikes she ended up getting the NORCO VFR4. She really loves it and it looks like we could be on our way to biking together which is the ultimate goal :)
