are some pics that Claire took of her bike when it wasn't *quite*
finished. The only differences now are the addition of toe clips,
the Nitto bottle cages, a frame pump, and a fake poppy mounted to
the front of the bag. Oh, she also lowered the stem quite a bit,
being the go-fast chick that she is.
a pretty standard Riv build, with a few blinged-out bits here and
there, like the blue headset spacer, lugged stem, some fancy fender/rack
installation tricks, and the "custom" rear reflector mounted inside
the unused centerpull cable guide.
is a lovely bike, and even though it's too small for me, I steal
rides on it whenever possible. Rock solid, responsive, and the ride
is as smooth as a baby's butt.
