We should turn this into a nicest wife's bike thread. I'll post mine when I get a chance to take a low res pic. (Can't post a photo of my wife however - sorry. Your's is great BTW.)

Are those red Nokons? Hard to tell in the pick - if so not sure I like.

How do all your ladies go with using SRAM?

I was considering putting it straight on to the missus bike and not let her learn Shimano. But now that she has gone down the Shimano path I don't know how game I would be in the future in changing her gruppo set up....as she's not a big one for major changes once settled...


Oh and they are some smashing bikes!!!

SRAM is great for small hands. The adjustable reach on the Red levers is a must for my wife's tiny hands (oddly I have very large hands of love the shape and feel of the levers).

She adapted to the shifting system in the first 100 meters with a careful advance tutorial prior to riding. This is a testament to the effectiveness of the SRAM system as my wife is seriously mechanically challenged. She has been on Shimano for years prior.

that cervelo is smashing! i thought it was a bold move to put a wife on SRAM as well.

how much does the bike weigh, and what about the weight with rider on board?
