To be honest she's not overly worried about specific model, just loves my Pioneer (Raleigh Pioneer Quest, only ever seen 1 identical). Not overly worried about weight, more interested in the comfort side of it, as she'll be training for a long but leisurely charity ride. That blue one looks like the mens version of the one my mother had when I was growing up, I loved that bike!
My Pioneer Quest only cost me £10, needed a wheel trueing, new bottom bracket and new gear shifters soon after, but I have to say despite the weight I like it more than any bike I've had, just seems so comfy, and has seen me through some long (for me) rides laden down with heavy panniers, tent etc without letting me down.
Will be looking at any bike we see before buying, to make sure it's suitable, but got Pioneer in mind basically because we know what we'll be getting pretty much, and they can often be got for a reasonable price; picked up a pristine one last year for £25 for another friend.
Thanks for your input, much appreciated
