@all: thanks a lot! :)

I didn't count the days, but I think it took about 5-6 months :lol:
The first rollout with my girlfriend will be in the next days, if it's not too cold.
Here some more pictures (unfortunately indoor):

Nice Greetings
Christian :)

Hey, it'd be a real shame if your girlfriend didn't like it. I mean, Flite saddle, size 18.5, 150mm stem and all that, not really very girly. :(

Cos then you'd have to go ride it yourself instead. :P

Hi Anthony,

riding by myself would be the b-plan ;-)

The ringlé is a 135mm, not 150. Meanwhile I changed the stem with a ringlé 135 and a little bit rise, approx. 10°. The saddle, yes - we will see... Perhaps i swap the saddle, but first i want to wait for first ride :)

Great bike, looks really something else, but... I kinda doubt that girl will feel good with this stem, saddle etc setup...

I've been thru this and my girl ended up with Gary Fisher Cake 2GS for just one silmpe reason: COMFORT ;-)

Streached out position is not so comfortable for a girl... you probably can guess why... :roll:

Anyways good luck! Bike looks fantastic! 8)
