    "Black Ops" 907

    I gave this to my wife for Christmas, the result of which seems to have been almost no snow... right now it's 63 degrees out. Whoops.
    The parts came together pretty well. Used Deore brakes, shifters, and rear derailleur for cost savings and to keep the black theme going. Surly 135 non-offset fork and "front" hub, Laserdisc rear hub, an old Syncros headset, e.13 crankset, an old LX e-type front derailleur, HG61 cassette (12-36), Vicious rims, and Giant seatpost and stem that I pulled out of the parts bin at the shop. The weight came in at around 34 lbs, which isn't too bad for mostly mid level components and undrilled rims.
    She likes it, and even got one slush/mud ride in on it before the snow completely melted.

    It's really nice that so many of you built/gave a bike as a gift for your girlfriends. Eventhough a bike is made of material too, the experiences it gives are more mental.
    One car less.

    I wish my wife didn't just hate bikes all together.
