Here's my spare Addict, this time outfitted for the fairer sex. Sure it's a hack - but it'll do for a intro to the sport. Perhaps a Contessa frame next season if all goes well. This is for a 5' 10" rider (177cm) which is only 1.5" shorter than me and the Size L frame suits me well. Of course, the leg, femur, arm, and torso lengths are all quite a bit different but perhaps the mens frame will do for now. The seat angle is pronounced downward in the photos, partly because the bike is leaning toward the camera but I'll level it out a bit more before the first ride. The geometry is still not dialed in, as it's yet to see the first ride.

This Force has seen a lot of epic rides but still goes strong. Here it's outfitted with SRAM Red (Black) bolts and BlackBox ceramic pulleys.

Interesting to see you gave her the recalled and discontinued Easton cranks. Is this build for an ex or soon to be?

Haha, I got these EC90's on warranty back in '09 after the first failed. I used them for the past 4 months and they seemed to be holding up well (longer than the originals). If they start developing play or start to make noise, then I'll get in touch with Easton. Are they replacing them with SRAM now?

That's the last I heard you would get SRAM Red cranks in exchange

Nice bike but I wouldn't trust those cranks.

You must be kidding! Addicts are great bikes and this one is so light.

You know you're a true weight weenie when you can build a second bike at 6.22kg with leftovers.

Very nice.

Only thing I might do is put black electrical tape on the ends of the bar tape instead of white? Just think it would make the transition between bar tape and handlebar look better.

Thankfully (although no one has mentioned it) the saddle is now at a more reasonable angle after field testing. I'll post a new photo, regardless of the snow :)

@limba, indeed the EC90 cranks are both fantastic and problematic. I think I was one of the first to submit a warranty claim and received this set in return (over time, I think Easton just started issuing SRAM cranks instead). I actually had to use these EC90's for 3 months when my Zipps failed and I expected they wouldn't last, but they did. Maybe I hit the 'sweet spot' in regard to torque settings..??? Anyway, if these fail, there should be a VumaQuad backup in the wings to take over. I do love the Q-factor of the VumaQuads.

@LouisN
She probably wouldn't like it if I posted a photo of her, but this is anonymous enough and shows how we tried to manage the fit (note that this is probably her 2nd ride on a road bike):
