Wow.

What's the build plan?

I am dream of silver Paul brakes, silver white industries cranks, silver potenza derailleurs, chorus ergos, nitto bar/stem/post, and cambium saddle/tape. The build could really go any direction though.

Oh, and the color, I dig it.

Thanks everyone.

Believe it or not, I'm still in shock I found one for her.

I really like some elements of this one....

and this one...

But I like Casey's excellent plan as well.

First things first though, as the frameset doesn't land till Thursday.

I just looked on the shelf here.

I have a Nitto s-83, a Nitto Craft One and a set of Noodles that might work.

In addition, a combo set of Paul Neo Retros and Tourings with brand spankin' new Kool Stops.

That's not a bad start.

No hurry on this build though, as I did a kneejerk two weeks ago and bought her a Diamondback Haanjo EXP as well.

Got a little carried away I'd reckon. I honestly never thought I'd find this MAP in her size.

That is a mighty fine start. It's hard t o get more lustworth than a craft one stem.

I really think the silver potenza derailleurs would look perfect with a WI crank. The black bits on the derailleurs should complement the black rings.

I think a potenza mid cage derailleur would look great, 32t cassete in the back and the mentiones white vbc crankset. Chorus shifters nice but I would probably just also do potenza shifters and FD. A nice swift industries bag as well.

Its going to be an excellent bike no mater what

I have a Swift Ozette and a Paloma that I swap between three bikes, so I do like their products.

But I got lucky when I found out there was an Acorn Boxy Rando bag included in the deal.

We'll give that a shot and see if she likes it.

Heh, thanks. Luckily I don't have to build it tomorrow though. She has another bike to ride until we get this sorted.

Yes, I like those quite a bit.

That VBC crankset is calling our name as well. I'll show her the options and let her decide.

As for the fork crown, it does look nice doesn't it! Can't wait to see the frameset in person.
