When I first started participating in this forum, I thought that getting "dialed in" meant little adjustments to the bike. A little higher here, a little lower there. Maybe a new stem. I know better now. Getting dialed in means trying out pedals, shoes, saddles, miscellaneous equipment, clothing, etc., until you find what works best for you. Oh, and maybe a bike or two while you figure out the kind of riding you prefer.
We've got a small pile growing, so I'd love to know: What do you do with all your perfectly good but "didn't work" stuff?
