I haven't complete dialed in my fit on my bike yet. I have a quick release on the seatpost that's helpful in deciding just how I want to have it. Once I get that dialed in, I'd like to get rid of the quick release (not that there are a lot of people who're going to want to steal my saddle, but still...). Once I decide I've got it set up the way I want, I can probably just pick up a bolt at the lbs right? I imagine there's a standard size (as seatpost diameter shouldn't effect the bolt as far as I can tell). Or can I just figure out the size and pick something up at the hardware store?
Not wearing a helmet makes me more aware of my surroundings. I find myself anticipating the hardness of concrete 50 or 100 feet in front of me, it's almost a zen-like connection between my face and the pavement.
