Pretty cool, she even got the rear light.

I know I couldn't draw one that well... I couldn't draw flies if I stopped bathing.

You could use 30gal Roughneck trashbarrels for panniers and still not get heelstrike with chainstays like that. Might be a little odd with the pursuit setup on the seat-to-bar height, though.

(Seriously, it's cool that she got details like lights and bottle cages.)

KOPS is going to be a ***** on that bike, especially considering the saddle to bar drop. You're going to be kneeing yourself in the throat on a regular basis!

(Even so, very cool. )

That's really good for being 8. It took me forever to draw a bike.

That's a seriously lengthy top tube and seat height. I hope you lower back is stretched out. That is an awesome pic, you should frame it and hang next to the bike. Thanks for sharing.
