White with rainbow accents describes it exactly. I got my wife out on it today and she loved it so it looks like this may work. Current plans for it are as follows now that I know she will ride.
Deore 9sp Vbrake/shift levers
Deore rear der (already have)
Flat bars (already have)
FSA gossamer exo drive cranks
XT front and rear hubs with aerohead rims 36 hole
12-26 cassette (already have)
Specialized armadillo tires 700x28
kalloy seatposts
total budget is about 350-400.00 which is doable with employee purchaseing.
I weight the bike and it totaled at 45lbs with the wheels totaling 12 of that. So it looks like the wheel swap will bring it into the 39lb catagory and switching the tourney cranks to FSAs will probably bring it a little lower. I'd like to have it around 35-37lbs. On a side not if anyone knows where to get replacement decals Iwas thinking of having this powder coated this winter and would want to rebadge it after. Powder coating is about 100.00 and would make the bike real sharp looking.
