It looks better than some. I like blue. Think it will be too much for the purple though.

She wants to make it a bit more girlie, I guess we'll have to see. As for the shock its got no rebound adjustment and its a really quick rebound, I think a nice fox rp3 rl shock would make it a nicer ride. She loves full sus tho, she cycles to work and back everyday on her Scott which is a 16mile round trip come rain or shine. When I met her 5years ago she hadn't ridden a bike for over 15 years!!!

She likes purple, which is handy as if she ever decides she doesn't want it I could use it for another frame for me :-D

Nice pair though I think hers would suit some purple RaceFace cranks on. They usually go cheap on eBay cos nobody wants them. :wink:

Something like these -

Wifes RC303 is black and purple but never thought of it as goth. Think she may be seeing some purple rotors soon though.
