I guess it's good to hear that she's partial to it, because it kinda looks like it would fit me well and I love that yellow. I would be curious to know the geo just to check against my eyes.

Compass, MAFAC or Paul?

Here you go. For reference the old geo had a 587mm front center (new is 619), 57cm TT, 73° HTA with a 390mm x 45mm Wound Up fork. The long TT will necessitate a 90cm (maybe 80) stem. I brought up low trail to gain front center, but both my wife and Curtis were not enthused.

Wife is 5' 11" with a 80cm saddle ht. (mine is 84cm at 6' 5"). She's got long femurs hence the 72 STA. Vertically I could fit this bike, but horizontally I'd need a 170 stem of thereabouts.

Damn! So close to my custom geo which is:

Stack: 665mm (would be ~645mm without the 2cm HT extension)
Reach: 377mm
Wheelbase: 1049mm (66mm fork offset with 73d HTA)
BB drop: 75mm
C-stay: 430mm
Standover: 868mm
HTA/STA: 73/73

I use a 90mm stem with a 115mm reach bar. 120mm with a modern 80mm reach bar. Let her know she has a bike to ride if y'all ever visit Louisville. Wouldn't even have to move the saddle.

This bike rules and is also very close to my geometry if I used a 0degree setback post and a longer stem.
I've been thinking my next bike would have braze-ons for centerpull brakes, and this is a great take on that. Super cool you're able to keep it in the family and that the modifications work better for your wife.

It's good to know there is a market to ultimately pass on my wife's bikes, unlike my own. She would also be using a 0° post but has decided to go Brooks B.17 so I may need to source one with a bit of setback. She's excited about the bike which is a really good thing. We've tried others in the past, but other than her commuter she rides her Hampsten 100% of the time.
