I finally convinced Liza to let me build her up a fast bike.
She prefers a 52cm -ish frame and she likes 26" wheels. She's not a low trail fan, but she likes a quickish front end.
I've been working this deal in the background for a while. It took me some time to find the frame. When I did, it was sound, but not pretty. With some bartering, trading, and just $40 cash, we'll end up with a freshly powder-coated frameset.
Very green apparently.
We'll be picking it up later this week in Seattle.
I've given enough hints for the bike nerds to make a reasonable guess on the frame make/model. So, I won't be a bore and lay it out there.
More to come.
