I dont know much about them except they are sold at big box stores. If she doesnt plan on doing any trail riding then its most likley fine for her , just take it to a bike shop and have it tuned up.

First off, it is $30.00. Odds are, it's worth the money. Second, you can't be expecting much from a $30 bike.

No. A kent is not a good bike. You could certainly find a better bike for $30 at a garage sale, thrift shop or flea market. I'd hold on to the $30 if I were you.

Is your fiance going to actually ride mountain trails with it? You trying to get out of the relationship? You just like being cheap with your future wife? What's up?
