    The Wifes New Ride

    Well it's done, not a mile on her until the morning comes...

    I'm equally pleased with the bike as my wife is the fit is excellent with the Thompson Masterpiece Zero set back post and the 80mm stem leaving plenty of room for movement for her. The color well the color screams girl! but is a really deep mauvish-pink. Full D/A with a 50-39/12-27 ratio, should be a fast machine that my wife more than deserves to have.

    16.2 lbs W/pedals and ready to ride...

    I still can't get over how much beefy-errr the top tube looks on such a small frame. 49 is the smallest they make and man it is just a tight little mold of carbon with some interesting shapes...............

    Yup, her longest ride with me is 86 miles on her Douglas from Colorado cyclist. It's 111 degrees here in phoenix today and we'll be hot until October. She does the 30, 40and 62 mile rides with me so yes the bike we'll get plenty of use and even more once th weather turns more favorable.......

    HAHAAHA! Nope I'd be the dumbest man alive to cheat on my wife. She is very different than the rest and she spoils me so she might as well be spoiled too....... Been with her 21 years, sure there are lots of pretty girls in this world and she lets me look all I want. In the end I come home to her and leave the gold diggers and the silicone queens to there own doings
