I bought this for the mrs for xmas as I didnt want to risk her on one of mine (not worried about the bike honest
I'm 6 foot 2 and Jenn is 5 foot 4..... hence problems with bike sharing.
I was looking for ages for something not too overkill but a good basic start for her.
I found this on the bay and it was just down the road from me in bedford too
When I got it it had a pair of rock shox judy race forks on it with 100 mm of travel.....
Looked a "bit iffy" as its only a 14 inch frame and it made the steering a bit slack to say the least.
I had a dig about in the box to see what was left after me building up my 'dale and found a pair of old judy sl (think they were 96 with the black stickers) looking a bit beaten up.
I was going to respray them white but Jenn put her foot down and wanted them red (wish I had kept my old judy DH now instead of giving them away
) after a failed attemp to talk her round I painted them and fitted them tonight.
looks ok for a first bike for her and she loves it too.
1999 14 inch Kona Hahanna
Repainted judy sl (with speed spring in the left leg)
acera x groupset with stx rc hubs and rapidfires.
club roost bars
planet x stumpy stem ( cause shes only short )
dmr flat pedals ( till she can find some spd shoes she likes
