    Ladies--Help me help my little sister...

    http://www.giantforwomen.com/index.p...=BIKE%20FINDER

    Any reviews?

    She's got a hybrid now that is tricked up, and I can tell she is getting the itch to make the jump to a 'real' road bike.

    Her LBS in the York, PA area carries Giant, and she thought this one was nice and in her $$ range.

    I just got Cheri an OCR1W for her birthday...with a few mods. She loves it.

    chipcom,

    Where did you get the pink tape and cages? I need those for my daughter's bike.

    LBS had the tape and cages, saddle is a Terry, cable housings are Jagwire.

    My kid sister is getting serious about this....her blog says she's already thinking about total cost when you factor in pedals, cages and a computer!

    The cable housings are a particularly nice touch.
