Several times I have offered to get her another bike but she just likes this one, and the last time we had this discussion she said "my only problem with this bike is that it isn't pink."

Well, we fixed that.

In the end, I think my wife had the right idea. This bike suits her needs perfectly, fits her perfectly, and now it's her favorite color.
What a great job! To my mind, every bicycle has only one purpose in life - to delight it's owner. Congratulations.
