This customized and pimped bike is for a very demanding owner that wanted a relatively light "girlie" type multi-speed bike that could be used on the city, trails and dirt roads-trails.

With the use of a steel frame and fork and two sets of wheels (700 x 23 & 700 x 38) I think the purpose was achieved. The owner says it rolls like a dream.

8/1/2011 Project is in constant evolution. Kalloy suspension seat post installed. Front Shimano 600 Arabesque derailleur and its Sun Race shifter removed, Dura Ace 52 chain ring also removed as owner was always using the smaller chain ring (39) and riding on level roads. Now it is a simpler bike. More actual photos will follow.
