    Girlfriend looking for a bike:

    Between:

    Scott Sportster P5 (Hybrid)

    or

    Scott Contessa 50 (Mountain)

    Does anyone have any opinion on these? It will be for riding on cycle paths which could be a combination of tarmac / gravel. Which would be better? What would be the noticeable difference in effort / comfort between these two? It has taken me quite a bit of encouragement to talk her into buying a bike, so would like to get one she would find a pleasure to ride. I will obviously be encouraging her to try them both out, but any advice from long term owners would be appreciated.
