Very lucky young man to have such a wonderful father! :beerchug:

I'm shopping a bike for my youngest daughter but she is height challenged at 5' even. Even some 43's have too high of standover clearance.

My son is now 5'6" so a little bigger, and this bike is perfect for him. He rides with a 90 mm stem, and the saddle can go up higher for 4 inch I guess.

Thinking about the crank , It could be a FSA K- Force light like the rest of the components or the Dura Ace 7900 crank... :? What do you guys prefer on this build ?
