Wow...you really are a resource for pink things Bill....  :-X

I'm in touch with my feminine side :)

Also, I think I'm going to order some Straitline stuff for my Intense (new stem and brake levers) this week or next.  Probably going with grey instead of pink though.

The wife is just a little over 5 feet tall...a 29er for her would require a step ladder to get into the saddle.


Not a 29er.

And yes, garry she loves her stumpy, but is hungry for a leaner bike.  This intense spider XVP will a much leaner ride and we are keeping her stumpy as a back up.  What can I say she loves pink.
