I'm in software QA (some of my work time). You guys would fit right in.

I never look for bugs in other applications -- way too easy and distracting. Same from when I worked in loss prevention in retail (catching shoplifters). These days I pretty much have to just look at the floor when I walk into a place, or I'll spot a thief 1/2 the time -- ruins the trip, you know?

WTF?

I'm a software developer. I don't look for bugs in software, sometimes they just present themselves. I was just playing around with the toso length to watch the effect on saddle position relative to the bars and them bam, the saddle falls. What's a guy to do but take a screenshot and post it for everyone tp see...

Actually, I thought the picture of the freak was funnier than the saddle.

Yeah, I'll say. This one can't even solve for me, and I'm really not that tall. You give me their XL frame and a box full of stems to play with, and I'll find a perfect fit. Stupid computers.

Could be that their TT frame runs 'unique' geometry

Too cool? Looks like they have 3 sizes of bike? S, M, L. I don't need to input anything to figure that one out.

EDIT - ok, whatever I clicked on had 3 bike sizes.

? They have everything from a 49cm up to 60 something.

Are you looking at their mountain frames? Shame on you.

Damn I got short legs.

Looks about right though. Only thing is I run about 1-2 cm longer tt + stem.

Pretty cool how the "rider" changes positions. Also the gear he pushes.

Looks about right for me. Much better sizing than you get from some bike shops. Surprising that people still use the stand over for sizing.

Pretty neat, would be useful for all the nubs in the road forum asking about what various adjustments do to the ride...
