I am looking for suggestions for a new bike for my wife -- she is just a casual rider but does enjoy cruising around the neighborhood.

I think the best bike for her would meet these criteria:
  • - upright rider position
  • - flat bar
  • - 1x drivtrain (she rarely uses the front derailler, even though her current bike is a triple!)
  • - tires: 30c or wider
  • - no suspension needed
To which my added criteria are:
  • - price under $600 (preferably)
  • - light-ish (I'm the one who has to put the bike onto the roof rack, and I think the frame of her current bike is a steel-lead alloy...)
Bike shop or on-line is fine by me.
