Happy (early) Birthday to my wife!
« on: September 13, 2013, 06:22:19 PM »
Just got this for my wife's upcoming birthday.  She tipped me off to the ad on mtbr's classifieds and after asking the seller some detailed questions and getting additional photos, I was satisfied and bought it for her.  My wife wanted it for the breakdown, and it arrived with enough time to work on fit.  It will most likely need a stem shorter than the 80mm one currently on it.  Hopefully that will be the only change necessary.

It's well used and has the dings from rocks to prove it.  My wife won't be riding it as hard as the previous owner, and the dings are pretty much just cosmetic.  I spent some time this afternoon giving it a good bath, too.


Now her bike is better than mine.
