finally got some pics taken of her new bike. Sorry that they
aren't very good.
The first pic is my birthday dinner
Her bike is an interesting mix of this and that. The rack came off an 80's bike.
I used it because it was light. The bike with the rack weighs 25 pounds.
Saddle is Brooks Finesse, the hubs and chain are XTR, the shifters and front der are Ultegra, the rear der and cassette are XT, the tires are Cypres at 50psi or a little less
Really nice bike, a lot of people are down on 650b. I have to say I love it.
