Wife bike supreme

I put this together for Mrs. Trotsky, and I'm pretty happy with the results. Mostly a parts bin build. Sort of Rivendell by way of retro Cannondale. She wanted the upright bars but loves retro aluminum.

--90s? something Cannondale R400 with Kinesis fork
--1x drivetrain with Shimano bar end shifter
--XT rear derailleur
--Sram Rival cranks with 42t wolftooth chainring
--11-32t cassette
--Tiagra calipers with Suntour XC levers
--Nitto Albatross bars
--Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels
--groovy rainbow housing from eBay
