Take your daughter to the shops and let her pick what appeals to her and somewhat fits her whether child or small adult size. Nothing would turn me off more when I was a kid than having someone else pick for me or overly steer me to choose. I needed to make my own mistakes and learn from them.

If she is going to be going through a significant growth spurt, then I'd buy something you can comfortably afford to replace at that time.

For me a road bike is a road bike not matter how the manufacturers advertise them..... race, endurance, fitness, etc. They all need to be "tried on" by the rider to see if they are the road bike for them
