Very nice :) Of course she will love it!

I've just done a build of a old Cannondale CAD2 F600 frame for my Daughter which failed man maths told me was cheaper than buying her a new one and she loves it! :)

Very nice!

Are you using an ahead to quill adapter on the forks and what is the bracket on the forks for the front brakes?

Many thanks
