She is live again after 16 months, out shopped her Sat. night. 21 lbs wearing a set of Rovals for a time trial Sunday. Steady and smooth, no handling problems up to 30 mph, need to get new brake pads before I try a big hill.
Her battle scars didn’t get fixed as I could not find a good match for her Silver Mist paint. She will have to be happy with a Dura Ace seat post and a cheep seat while she is with me, as her Campy is not long enough and the Brooks doesn’t like the Dura Ace. She will be getting her wheels back as soon as I get the freewheel serviced and new 27” tires.

Here are her new beauty photos.

I like it, but one thing sticks out - the saddle to bar drop, and the additional seat post. I guess it's just unusual to see on a ladies' [or even a mixte] frame.

And how did you do in the time trial? Was she entered in an "Eddy" category, or did you race against the carbon & TT bar crowd?

I don't think the saddle-to-bar drop is that radical ...

It's not radical at all, and wouldn't even show on a level top tube frame. Just unusual for most ladies C&V setups.

Bar drop is optical illusion, actual 2”. TT was run what you bring 12.5 mi around Presuqe Isle Erie Pa.

2019 spring P60 Paramount 46:34 16.1 seat post not tight enough went down 2” from expansion joints

2018 spring TX900 Trek 56:16 13.3 freezing, light snow, brutal wind flat at 11.5 mi

2017 spring Cervelo P3 45.23 16.5 run disc, but bike not fast,

If she had a real motor on her she would have been lunching on carbon fiber and discs.

That's ok, she still outclassed them hands down.
