Good Beginners Bike for Female!

Hi all.
I'm in the market to start trail riding in so cal. I've been looking at the hardtail, disc brake 09 Specialized Womens Myka and the Jamis Trail X2.
Any suggestions?

Don't limit yourself to women's bikes. You might find that a "men's" bike fits you better, depending on your proportions. For example, the women-specific Specialized Safire was a terrible fit for me, but the unisex Yeti AS-R fit like a dream. Shop around, try out as many bikes as you can, and pick the one that feels the best.

Try every bike you beg borrow or steal If your LBS doesn't let you ride the bikes, don't buy from them.
