Now no squabbling and wingeing....you can have one when you are a bit older.
Just finished my daughters first bike.
1994 Scott Junior Fox.
Got a bit carried away :roll:
New wheels built up...pretty much standard KK front hub....Shimano Hyperglide 130mm rear hub so we can now muck around with ratios or pop a cassette on if she wants gears.
New Cranks
New Tektro V Brakeset inc. levers
New headset
Replaced BB with good quality UN52 type from Anthony...thanks mate
20T Gusset Cog from Guybe...thanks fella
New stem on its way.
New PC1 1/8th Chain
First ride after school :D
PS Pink is more vivid in the flesh

I thought you'd have taught her to recognise gears as the work of satan himself and steer well clear of that particular temptation.
