    Wife's bike. or husbands bike if you're GOB or other women on this forum.

    What bike(s) does your significant other ride? Do they build their bikes or did you build them.
    Here's my "wife's" bikes.
    1994 Kestrel CsX XT build

    Do you not like her?





    Kiiiiidding, kidding.

    My wife doesn't ride, but I keep building bikes for her when I find something cool that doesn't fit me.
    Few changes on this P-23 since the pics. Matches my P-23 Team.

    If this thread title was changed to "Post up your partner's vintage MTBs" it would be:

    a. less cumbersome;
    b. more politically correct; and
    c. more inclusive.

    Unless of course we really want a thread dedicated to the bikes that married heterosexuals build for their spouses.

    Just sayin' is all.

    My gay friends call their partners all sorts of things. Not sure my lesbian friends use "husband" though.

    I refer to my wife as Khaleesi. Lord knows I am unworthy.

    I just keep her bikes tuned and cleaned. She was not riding at all. I had found an old frame and was pulling a bike together from my box o' parts. She came into the shed and said, "that can be my bike." Yes Khaleesi.

    I know it isn't vintage but we are and I wouldn't be doing this without her support.

    I consider the Stache an instant classic so I will go ahead and post the bike I built for my wife. I have been riding a Stache 8 for about a year now. The wife approached me about a month ago and asked me to build her a bike. A quick look on eBay and I found what I needed to build her exact copy of mine in her size minus the problematic Fox fork. She loves the matching bikes. She is even talking about having the kids drive them selves to the inlaws on thanksgiving and we ride our bikes. It's over 20 miles away.

    Over the years I've built way to many bikes to count for girl friends but I no pics to prove it.

    Single is soooo much cheaper.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims 80's vintage 32 or 36
    Salsa or similar stem. 1" threadless. 120 with rise.

    Point taken. My quiver is always larger when I'm single.

    I guess I'm fortunate in that my wife doesn't care and/or isn't interested enough in my bikes or guitars to bother me about what they cost. That doesn't stop me from telling her how much profit I make when I sell one though, hoping she'll assume I'm making money doing this .

    Anyway, wife's bike (it has a 2 x 7 drivetrain now), which will probably be in hibernation for the next 6 months now that winter has begun:
