Living between city and country. Trying to do it by bike.
It looks very nice, and like a great fit. I hope she enjoys it, and understands what a cool bike it is. Nice job.
I was reading back through the archives, and I noticed you are looking for tires fatter than 27x1-1/4". If you don't mind a heavier tread, Niagara Cycle Works has 27x1-3/8 knobbies available on Amazon. There are also some more road-oriented 1-3/8 tires listed on Amazon (but I was specifically looking for knobbies, myself).Love the blog, by the way. Just stumbled across it the other day.
Jon, another chap left some tire suggestions as well. The ones I have chosen for now are there because (a) I was anxious to finish it, (b) the tires I got were so very inexpensive, and (c) they were available. However, I will be looking into a wider tire for sure, then my daughter will have a spare set! Funny you mention Niagara Cycle too, they are very close to me and I still have not been there yet. My intention is to get there sometime through the winter (but I want to go with a pocket full of cash, so I am waiting for that to happen first).
What a fine bicycle you've built up for your daughter! I hope she enjoys riding it as much as you seem to have enjoyed building it.
@GravelDoc - thanks, I'm learning.
