It is a 54 cm frame , It is a little tall for her to ride right now. It is a wall hanger until she gets a little taller. I will wait until she is full grown to cut the seat mast to her size. She is Jeremy Powers number one fan and has been following him on the web and seen him at many races since she was 10. She has meet him in person at five races . More of a fan memorbila item than an actual riding bike at this point. She has a wall of Jelly belly pictures, and autographs , Jerseys etc.. She can tell you at anytime what race he is going to and what place he got in his last race. It gives here inspriation to get out and ride her current bike and keeps her intrested in pro cycling. I bought all of the component sligtly used and have around $1100 in the bike.

LOL...Well, since it's getting to the point that there is more darkness than light, rain 80% of the time until June... and that it's only been four months since I was run over by a 14,000 # GW truck...I'll have to be a tad freddy. :D

cmsuter 11-07-10 11:19 PM

Well thats the most convincing argument for fredliness that I think I have seen. Nice Job! :beer:

You've got no eye for a classic. That bike is worth two of any of the other bikes here (weight-wise, anyway).

the tires are bontrager race x lites. only half of it is orange, the right half... when i bought them the orange was much much brighter, bordering on yellow.

the tape in the pic is deda tape, it's a very deep rich orange color, however bontrager makes an orange tape that's like their tires, very very bright. after a while it all turns grey anyway.

thus far, bontrager has had the most interesting tape colors i've found, some of my favorites are a very subtle apple green color. watered down if you will. and a very light blue.

below is a pic of the bontrager tape i had before many upgrades including wheels, and the pic below it is the same bontrager green tape I mentioned on a bike I had built up earlier this year before i sold the group.

The day I took that picture I rode it almost 50 miles, including a Critical Mass ride. How about a slightly more serious attempt. This is currently my fastest bike, a 1987 Schwinn Prelude
