because i care

deanna has been riding a lot for the past six months. the women's rides have really put a fire under her, as well as having a connection to the job we do. when she said that the pistachio green ORBEA DIVA was sooooo cool, i thought it might be time for an early birthday present.
notice how the R-Sys wheel nipples match the paint on the frame and fork? that was my idea.

and that new ultegra sl has that classy look and performance to match. if there is one thing i know how to do, it's building up a bike for someone else....love you, honey.

Sweet ride!! November 5th is coming up, and you don't even have to tell me you love me. Let me know what you think about those wheels, if they live up to all the hype!!

VERY nice, she'll appreciate it, it's useful and maybe a little cheaper than jewelery....

Wow that is an awesome birthday present. Congratulations to her and the build looks sweet.

My husband is absolutely wonderful! The way he surprised me was just as awesome as the bike itself. Just to let you all know how it rides; like a dream, pedaling on air. It definately makes me want to ride faster harder and more often. I guess this means I have a few more hill training days with my hubby.

What a great birthday present, much better than jewerly! Thank you so much, handsome, you're the best:)
