any good bike deals at rei "garage sale"

i am looking to buy my wife a comfort bike. something like a schwinn voyager gs. the rei garage sale is coming up in a couple of weeks but i have read other threads and they dont really mention any great deals on bikes. i dont want to spend too much, she is not much of a cyclist but i do not want to buy somethng cheap from a big box store. any suggestions. thanks in advance.

REI has sales that they don't list.
You have to go see what they have in the back room.

Welcome to the forums! We don't have an REI close, 200 plus miles East or South, so I can't say. I know Academy, it's local, has some nice rides for folks who may not be much of a cyclist.

Around here REI calls the sales "scratch and dent" sales. Almost all of the items are returns (REI has a lifetime return policy) or items with pieces missing, or last years low end stuff.
Go to a real bike shop and look around. You don't want to get second rate (or lower) stuff for your wife.
