Hi,
My wife rides cycles a lot. She usually travels between home and works in her cycle. Recently she is really into off-road cycling. She has been going for free rides in bike trails with a mountain bike borrowed from her friend. Our anniversary is coming up and I am thinking about buying a mountain bike for her. I really don't know anything about this so I am looking for some suggestions. The following are my requirements.

The price should not exceed $3000
The bike should be specifically made for women

So please suggest some bikes which come under these requirements. Also, I have a few doubts about bikes.
What is the difference between a fat bike and usual mountain bike?
What are the specialties of a women's mountain bike?
What about <spam removed> tune-ups? Is it really necessary?
Please reply considering the fact that I don't really know anything about bikes.

A 3000$ fat bike for sure, safer, better ride. Less stuff to go wrong. You dont need shocks frt or rear, tires are 8 lbs psi. She may let you ride it.

A bicycle, also called a cycle or bike, is a human-powered, pedal-driven, single-track vehicle, having two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. A bicycle rider is called a cyclist, or bicyclist.
Bicycles were introduced in the late 19th century in Europe, and by the early 21st century, more than 1 billion have been produced worldwide. These numbers far exceed the number of cars, both in total and ranked by the number of individual models produced. They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. They also provide a popular form of recreation, and have been adapted for use as children's toys, general fitness, military and police applications, courier services, bicycle racing and bicycle stunts.
The basic shape and configuration of a typical upright or "safety bicycle", has changed little since the first chain-driven model was developed around 1885. But many details have been improved, especially since the advent of modern materials and computer-aided design. These have allowed for a proliferation of specialized designs for many types of cycling.
The bicycle's invention has had an enormous effect on society, both in terms of culture and of advancing modern industrial methods. Several components that eventually played a key role in the development of the automobile were initially invented for use in the bicycle, including ball bearings, pneumatic tires, chain-driven sprockets and tension-spoked wheels.

Thanks for the update. Now configure the rider into a supine recumbent riding position and you will find the nearly singular purpose of this website and forum. Not simply bicycles and bicycling, but rather, a specific devotion to recumbent cycling. Like the name says....
