Here's my girlfriends sweet new ride! (keep it clean here, fellas ;) )

She's a talanted, "advanced begginer", and needed a 14" frame (5'2" - tried lot's of 13's and 15's). I picked up the frame brand new, or "unused" rather, for about $100. It still had all the factory "warning" labels on it.

For less than $500 (eBay) and parts salvaged from my newly rebuilt HT (rip), she's got:

14" Komodo frame NIB
Marzocci MX Pro ETA 105mm 2003 (I had) w/ custom green flames!
FSA Orbit XLII headset NIB
Truvative Stylo SL cranks / rings NIB
Raceface BB NIB
SRAM 9.0SL 8 speed drive train (front/rear d'er, gripshifters, cassette) (I had)
Avid mech disc brakes 160mm (I had)
Avid SD7 levers NIB
Titec Hell Bent 1" riser bar 2003
RockShock suspension seatpost NIB
Mavic 317's hand built w/ bling-bling red nipples (about half thebike's cost w/ hubs)
Specialized Stoutfly hubs
Serfas Lola seat
Salsa stem and seat clamp
Kenda BG+Neve 2.35 tires (shown w/ ElGatos)

Sweet for her first "real" bike. 23 lbs in all! Killer geometry!

If the frame were any bigger, she'd have to fight me for it!
I'd trade my 2002 Stumpjumper for one of these in a heartbeat!

Lucky girl!
