    Adding another to the Pack..

    Not for me this time, my wife is joining in on the fun. She enjoyed our riding in South Lake Tahoe last year and I managed to convince her that a proper MTB would help her enjoy her riding more.

    So...called up V and scored this awesome setup.

    18" Chivo in Mercedes Blue. (69'er)
    Manitou Tower 100mm, 15mm Thru Axle, 1 1/8" Steerer (those are getting hard to find!)
    Easton 69'er Haven Wheelset.
    2014 X-7 Drivetrain and Shifter, including Type II Rear Der. w/RaceFace Evolve cranks. First 10sp in the family.
    Hayes Stroker Trail Brakes, yes they are white to match the fork and look of the bike.
    Raceface Bars and Stem. Freedom Saddle (By WTB).

    She's only had a few rides on pavement so far but she's quite happy with it. Dailling in the fit (Bar height) still.
    Looking forward to family MTB rides this spring/summer!
