Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I wouldn't say that a shorter person in general needs to have a rise. In her case, her reach is good where it's at. Lowering the bars increases the reach; A shorter stem / shorter reach bars would be needed to correct for it. You're right though, the frame is a bit on the large side for her size, it's why many WSD frames have a shorter top tube than a comparable dudes frame.

He's giving a shot at taking a peasant looking photo so we can all relate. Good flash reflection on frame, bad contrasting of colors and materials yet impeccable machinery and staging. Thanks for trying to make us feel good, copper

I put the bike together for a ride dedicated to my wife who was diagnosed with breast cancer. I am riding it in the YSC Tour de Pink- East Coast to support woman diagnosed with beat cancer. It is a 225 mile three day ride. But I am a male. Using my bike and my ride to raise money to support the YSC.

The SL is hot as well in my opinion. Too bad I can only ride one at a time.

This finish on the SL is ridiculous.

He uses scrap to make crazy pattern. I wont buy another bike for a long time.

Great looking bike though.
