My girlfriend has a 1994 (if I'm correct) Cannondale Killer V500. Frame is old and in perfect shape, original STX parts were replaced. Most is XT, and SRAM. Fork is a Manitou R7. I still have the original fork.

Another pink Kona. I was Karma'd this frame from Grannygrinder last year and found myself saying "Pink" at the powdercoaters, so it became the wife's bike. Cycling's not really her thing but we get out for a few rides as a family in the Summer.

My wife's non retro bike:
Image

It's a K2 razorback Team. It couldn't be other... I own three proflex bikes.

Now it has some little changes: Kore flat bar, Kore stem and other saddle. I put that Selle Italia Donna saddle, but she didn't like much more.

She has an older BH that it is in resto mode ;-)

Does the ex-wife count? The bikes are my favorite part of these photos, now:
I built her three bikes:
Cannondale M1000 (1992 or so)
Cannondale SM800 (pink 1987 or so)
Independent Fabrication Special (1997)
