got the pricing to send the frame back and it was not worth it. So anyone want a RS 48cm frame let me know.

Nice bike 8)

A compact crankset would have been a better option for your wife imo - the bike would be a lot easier for her to learn to ride.

So, what does the wife think of her new bike?

she likes it so far, and strangely eager on how to ride it. We picked it up yesterday and put it on the trainer so she could practice the unclipping and if she was comfortable. She was hurting after 10mins with the female bike shorts.

Apparently she has never ridden since she was 4, a old slide picture that i scanned end of last year. Just realise that is a hard core bike with handle brakes :S

I hope you are getting her a proper bike fit so that the bike is set up right for her - no pair of shorts will cancel out a bad fit :wink:

nah it was properly fitted to her, the LBS built it and fitted her when we took the bike home, we are coming back Thursday for the pedals and looking around for saddle. Wife felt comfortable on the bike just her ass hurts and to make things a bit worst its that time of the month. She tried the bike with and without the bike shorts and noticed the big difference. I sat on her saddle and it is pretty hard.
