My Girlfriend's Rb-2: some mix&match

Veloce 9s shifters to a Tiagra hubbub rear derailleur and 8s Shimano 105/mavic wheels. The bars are ritchey biomax with a polish job on the flats. The ergo bends are uglier in the picture than in real life. They are, however, some of the comfiest bars I have ever ridden. The flats actually slightly sweep back for a more anatomic position. 700x28s for now until she wants to get a bit more serious for the RSVP ride in August.

I didn't feel too bad about the mix&match because Grant was all about doing that for functionality.

Thanks.

It's probably a camera thing. The bars are marked, and measure, 38.5.
