This is a bike that i bought for my girlfriend but like always got sucked right in to making it the best it could be. It just needs cables and a chain and its finished.

Please let me know what you think. Its not a big money build but it seems like a really nice spec and for a steel frame its very light.

nothing wrong there fella, if its a rider though I'd probably opt for a shorter stem. Also that seatpost has a lot of layback, women generally have shorter torsos than men so she may find the position a bit stretched. All women are different though...

Stem aint my cup of tea, and as stevet1 said, reach may be a little OTT for a lady.

Otherwise, cool 8)

Perfect, but I'd add a WTB She saddle.

Surely not for discussion here! :shock: :oops: :wink:

Mazdaman,

I like the build - agree with the comments above except for the groupset one. If its not a big budget build, will be a rider etc then go with what works/ or like I do what I have!

Love the colour too :wink:

It's looking good so far mate. :wink:

If it was mine I'd change the stem though. Although I've got a soft spot for I Beams, I don't think it works on a C16
As for the mix of gear...... If it's a rider then it's no big deal, but some M739 STIs would look neater than the LX and Avid levers. You'd then have an XT/XTR mix which is nice. :D

I'm guessing there's a Middleburn crank going on?

Finally. Is it allowed to have a Judy fork and Pace hub on the same bike AND a Judy on an Orange!!!! :shock: ?? :lol:

:wink:
