While I pretty much hate that phrase, sometimes it fits.
I raised my saddle this morning. A lot. A whole lot. I have been reading about raising saddle and proper height, and I suspected mine was too low, but....just did not "just do it." With the adjustment, heaven on earth!!!!
This morning waiting on my wife (Uhmm) I raised and rode, raised and rode, and raised and road till I got it right...Over 3 inches. Wow, I am not in as bad a shape as I had thought. Everything is SO MUCH EASIER. Especially the knees!!
I have been back in the saddle, for only two 1/2 weeks, but we went 15.4 today at 11 mph. That is 25% more than I have been yet, and except for an aching butt, I think I could have done 30. EZ.
If you have not checked your saddle, or if you relied on the LBS to get it right, Check it, TODAY. There is no comparison when you get it right. Now, off to the bike shop to drool over an FX.
wrong side of 300 (but getting closer)
