    Nice ride.

    to beat the rest of the folks to it....

    dork disk

    take photos only in the big/little combo

    align the crank arms with the seat tube or chain stay

    spin the wheels so the valves are hidden by the seat stay/chain stay and forks

    looks like the nose of the saddle is pointed a little high


    but... NICE ride.

    (triple.. in Ohio? do they have hills there? )

    Looks great, when will I be seeing it at a race? For that matter, when do you think you will be healed up enough from your crash to get back to training?
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I have some tweeking to do, mainly the seat, I expect my doc to give me a full release. After being off for 5+ weeks I can tell that I have not been riding - I dont sleep as well. I will be racing as soon as I can and I know its going hurt some for awhile. The leg is looking much beter and itching like crazy.

    nah, that saddle tilt looks fine. The Specialized BG saddles raise up in the front, it's just what they do. Seriously, though (folks) the looks of it doesn't matter -- Jamie how does it feel?

    D'ohh .......

    I'm just starting my second year of riding and am still out of shape and over weight, so what hills I do have are like mountains to me. Before the crash I was planning on driving to more hilly areas LOL of Ohio ( Cinncy, Athens & Mansfield ,) areas for some serious climbing - for Ohio.

    The tilt looks exagerated against the car, I will probably bring the nose down just a bit. My first 50 mile ride will let me know.

    That is a disturbingly small frame.

    I'm 5'6.5" and I would have gone with the 49cm, personally. The head tube on that frame would be too long for me, even without the huge spacers on top of it. That and I like a 110mm stem.

    After adjusting the seat last night, I went for a ride this morning. Nothing special, more like the bike and I getting to know one another and we teamed up for 22+ miles before my toes got cold.

    This thing is a Sweet ride and so responsive. I like the bike. I dont have the abilitiy to take it to the limit. Never was off the big ring and "climbed" our "hills" faster than before at a moderate effort.

    Life is good.....

    Rock on! Even better than looking good (which it definitely does) is feeling good.
