That's one funky saddle angle. Are you constantly pushing yourself back under hard efforts because you creep forward? Do you get sore arms or hands on long rides?

Yeh it's a strange angle. But after playing around with a lot of different angles I have found this works for me. Don't find myself pushing backwards or falling forward and don't get any aches or pains anywhere.

Strangely enough - I agree! They were the singles already on the 8.9s so they'll stay until they're stuffed before back to black.

Stick with the skinwalls. Black tyres are meh and just blend into the background. Everyone else has a black bike. Be a little different.

What the heck? :shock: I bet that must get some interest! :D

This is mine after some quite radical fit changes, and some other little tweaks:

Saddle went up 30mm, cleats went back a bit, bars were rotated down, hoods moved somewhat inwards, brake levers adjusted a bit. The next step is to change the bars to 40cm ones from the 42 that are on it. The changes have made a huge improvement to riding it over long distances and stopped the fatigue feeling in the upper part of my legs. It feels effortless now. A shame however that it has a small battle scar on the front fork, someone else riding along with me kicked up a small stone and it fired off sideways right onto the fork - chipped the paint. :( Otherwise - going strong, approaching 7000km.

30mm is a huge increase in saddle height. You must of been riding bow legged before the adjustment.

Lucky you had 30mm of adjustment in that ISP.

Not that I noticed - but I did note that my quads were getting fatigued and ending up quite sore after a long ride. I was using them mostly and not other muscle groups. Now that has changed.

The guy who did the changes mentioned that was probably happening before I said anything. I just thought I'd lost some strength and just had to tough it out and it'd get better. The changes solved a couple of other niggling complaints, and identified a couple of things I have to do a little bit differently.

I couldn't believe how much difference the changes made. :) Indeed very lucky that there was enough adjustment with spacers in there.
