Alternatives to the Raleigh Detour Deluxe

Not that I have a problem with Raleigh or the bike -- actually it's pretty much perfect -- but I'm curious to what else is out there in a ready-to-go commuter.

This will be for my wife, and she likes the internal gearing, the chain guard, fenders, dynamo hub and rack. I see the disc brakes as overkill, so if there is something similar with rim brakes that is cheaper, I'd at least like to look at it.

Also, she hasn't test ridden one yet, so if the fit isn't right, she'll want to look at other options.
