    Novara Bonanza vs. Novara Bonita - women's MTB

    REI has just cut the prices on these hardtails to $469 from the original price of $599. I am looking for a good entry level bike for my wife. Would you recommend these bikes and if so, is one prefereable to the other? Most of our riding is single track type riding in NC and WV area. Thanks.

    These bikes along with the Ponderosa are REI's value hardtails. With the womens bike you will get a shorter top tube, womens seat and colors that are more attractive for women. You should really take your wife to look at the bikes and let her make the decision. If she is short she may not need the Bonita. If you have a Performance Bike nearby I would also check them out. Earlier this year my wife looked at bikes at both stores and found one at Performance.
