    My GF's new bike

    I hooked my girlfriend up with a bike so she can ride with me on some trails. It is an 07 Giant Rincon I got on close out for cheap. I had my buddy paint the frame for me to suit her needs, he just did a quick sand and spray over the original paint, so you can still see some of the decals very faint. It turned out pretty good I think. It is stock except I switched to black housing instead of the stock silver and removed the reflectors. Also pink end caps

    I do not know the brand, it is automotive paint though.

    I just put her on the bike and luckily it fits her well. It was one of the last two in stock and they were both the same size, so I got it hoping it would fit. She has to stop by the shop one day and get a helmet and then we will go for a ride this week.

    She said it looks like a cheap bike since you cant see that it says Giant or anything on it, but I like it that way. I was going to paint my frame when i got mine as well, but once I decided on the composite frame it seemed like too much work. Plus, I like the carbon and it would be a shame to cover it up.

    That is all.

    OK bye.

    An important word of advice if you treasure your relationship, from someone who has invited many of his non-biker friends for a ride, huff and puff, and act like you're tired on the first ride to make them feel better, i didnt and just did my regular ride, and none of my friends will go biking with me anymore.
