Linda, an adventure racer in Georgia, came to us with a few criteria:
She wanted a light bike- that fit her well, with neutralized handling, and had good standover height. Oh, and it should look good, too. 🙂
We built her a superlight Fifty-Five with all the aforementioned traits. Plus it has good mud clearance for her southeastern trails.
We took a little extra time with her bottom bracket, milling the shell down to remove some more weight.
