Nice, Susan!

My GF has a custom steel Dean. She rode the snot out of that thing. Think she's going to try to have Dean weld in some horizontal dropouts and convert it to SS since she just got her custom Seven Duo.

Looks like a monster stack of spacers under the stem. You checking it out before cutting the steering tube or is that the setup you're going to run?

Would love to see a pic of your GFs Seven Duo. Hope you can post one!

Good eye there FreeRange. I do indeed have a stack of spacers under the stem. This is actually the set-up I plan on using, at least for now. Just took it out for a test spin and it is SWEET. Huge difference from my old (and I mean OLD) Trek.

Funny you mention SS. I was thinking of re-purposing my old Trek frame as a SS. May even try doing it myself (a mechanic I'm NOT).

She posted some pics of her Duo in this thread...

She's only 4'10" so it's a really tiny bike. I look like a clown on it.... I look like a clown anyway, but I digress.

The Trek will be a good test subject now for learning some wrenching skills. The best way to learn is to get your hands dirty. The Park Tool web site is a great resource for "How To's" on bike repairs.

Enjoy that sweet new ride.
