A few of you read about my wife's unfortunate accident back in March. She's doing well and although still in physical therapy, she's decided she wants to get back on the bike. Hooray!!! :banana:

Well to make it a little less psychologically difficult, I want to get her on a new road bike so she doesn't second guess her equipment at all while riding.

I'm looking for a 50-51cm frameset. I'd prefer to get her titanium or carbon but steel is always an option. I just wanted to check the forum before I go about ordering her something new.

Some possibilities might be:

Independent Fabrication - Ti Crown Jewel, Factory Lightweight, etc
Moots - Vamoots CR
Parlee - Z3, Z4
Calfee - Luna, Tetra
Pegoretti - anything
Hampsten - Crema, Team Pro, etc
Serotta - Ottrott, Legend

And here some evidence of why getting a pinch flat going down a mountain sucks...

I saw that. Too bad he had it repainted. The original paint scheme was perfect!!!

Bump up one last time before I order a new frame. I want to get my wife a new bike for Xmas.

I just listed a bike for my friend this morning.

"51" Felt AR4 thread link (http://forums.thepaceline.net/showthread.php?t=97937). Has a 53cm TT, 51cm ST.

It's definitely not a Parlee, but it's done my friend very well - even being too large.

Were you interested in just the frame/fork or a complete bike? I've been considering selling my Parlee (http://forums.thepaceline.net/showthread.php?t=56064&highlight=parlee).
