My wife’s old one, there’s a build thread on here somewhere

Good story behind it, I bought from the guy that built it down in Bristol

Despite the small size, still a bit awkward to ride for a less committed cyclist, long in the top tube but with the pioneer geometry that’s like needing a ladder to mount

No damages when I had it
