Sorry, I've never bothered to take a picture of my wife's bike. It's a Trek 3900 that she so seldom rode that I started commuting on it before I got my Panasonic so I added fenders, slicks, and a taller stem and swept back handle bars. It looks like a real Fred-mobile. Now it sits forlornly in the garage hoping for the rare, occasional day that she actually takes it out. Usually once a year.

Thanks... you've done some great rides. I'd love to do the Great Southern in Aus.

I know... but work won't allow me...

I just returned from Oz.. cycled round Sydney and short rides 10-40km in the Lake Maquarie area... on a Fixie... re-learned to grind up hills. Picked up a new frame for my wife and just finished building it... I'll post a pic as soon as I can. Here's a pic of her "old" bike, SubZero 1... which is only about 6 months old. I found a SubZero Pro frame at a ridiculously low price and showed her... big mistake.... she had to have it She LOVES Sarah Ulmer's bikes and I must admit they're pretty good. The SubZero Pro frame weighed 1kg (48)

First ride on the SubZero Pro yesterday... pics soon.

Left SubZero 1 and right SubTrax

Gina's bike, Trek Pliot 5.2 full carbon full Ultegra! I wonder how many other guys have actually paid more for the better half's bike than theirown...Gina's bike was 3x the price of my bike. Her helmet 30% more and her tires 3x the price of mine! I loves my wife!: thumb:
