I'm so bad when it comes to waiting. I can't seem to get past the fact that I just put money down, so I want it nao. That, and the idea that my bike "stopped" fitting me has gotten to my head. bleh.

Brace yourselves....(NNC time)

3T ARX Team stem. Made the move from -10deg/100mm to -17deg/120mm. Big improvement when climbing out of the saddle. Before that, my forearms were really feeling overloaded in the same situation. So this+my n00b patience (6 WHOLE DAYS) made for a nice closing of the day.

I'm sure I'm cool enough for Salsa_Lover with this drop, which is somewhere > 20cm. :wink:

I can't explain getting that LG seatpost, other than I got it for 20 bucks. hehe. Considering removing the label.

is it level?
Looking at the line of the street below, photo isn't entirely level. Still, I did tilt it a bit because it (Fi'zi:k Aliante) doesn't have a linear profile to scoot along. The neck/rivet has this sudden rise or bump while the main seated section feels much lower. Was eye-ing an Arione, but I've been getting along.

...and then roll them up just a tiny bit more.

...and cut that steerer

...and decide which rims you want to use.

Please tell me you don't lock your elbows when on the bike, and that you occasionally use the drops.

don't, and do.

I'm srs; in the drops sometimes when climbing seated. Majority of the flats see me in them unless I'm getting water, etc.
