Now that I have your attention ;
During January I put together a nice commuter/road bike for my daughter. Using a new Jamis Nova Pro Cyclocross frame, I added 105 & ultegra bits and Mavic Open Pro wheels.
I imagined she would start commuting as the weather warmed, we live in Chicago.
This morning she announced that she did not want to keep paying for gas and maintaince and was commuting by bike from now on!
I told her it was still cold, about 35f and that it might rain today.
She took off anyway and called upon arrival me to say that she loves the new bike.
A Nice low cost frame. Carbonfiber seat stays and fork, very light. The bike comes in at about 18 Lbs.
12-27 105 cassette, 105 rear derauller, Ultegra front derauller, FSA Gossamer crank: 46t & 36T
FSA compact drop bars, BBB carbon stem, 105 Brifters Tektro brakes and cross bar levers
