Yes, Jesus on rollerblades is rad, but I’m talking about bike-building. I am finished. Little Miss Sunshine’s new 29er is complete, and I must say that it looks pretty cool. I actually have a few odds and ends to take care of, but it is rideable in it’s current condition.
Here is the newest addition to the family:
It came out really nice, in fact I was pretty surprised at how good it looks. Now for the details.
Of course, I told you that it is a Niner Air9.
Little Miss Sunshine just had to add some orange blingy parts, so she went with some Crank Brothers stuff:
She had to use her all time favorite seat, the WTB Speed She. This one even makes it a little girly.
I mentioned the Kenda Slant Six tires and the Stan’s wheels:
She picked this crankset out all by herself, a TruVativ FireX:
And just for the cool factor she went with Lizard Skins lock on grips:
With custom orange lock rings that say “Sunshine.”
Man, I love this bike. It almost makes me want to build up one just like it for me. I think I might be good on bikes right now though, so I’ll let her enjoy this one. It might be a while before this bike actually sees a trail though, since she is riding in the 24 Hours of Booty (thanks to those of you that donated to her by the way.)
I know she will enjoy riding her new toy, which I could tell when I saw her riding up and down the street on it after I finished building it. This should give her miles and miles of singletrack fun, and she deserves it. Now, if you will excuse me, I think I’ll go give my bikes some love. They are jealous.
