I've been comparing the Litespeed with the Felt trying to get the Litespeed as comfortable as it was when I bought it. It's amazing what a new bike does to your brain. Makes you think about the strangest things -- like, is the old bike still comfortable?
I decided it wasn't so did some shopping. I ordered a new stem (Easton EA70, -6*), handlebar (Easton EA70), and seatpost (Thomson Elite setback). Got the parts Saturday and installed everything yesterday. I compared the measurements with the Felt, made the necessary adjustments to the Litespeed, and went for a ride today. Did my usual route. The Litespeed felt awesome -- kinda like it did when it was new. It's amazing how the bike changes over time. Or is it my body that changed?
The two biggest changes were (1) the new handlebar has a shorter reach and less drop and (2) the seatpost has the typical setback. The old seatpost had zero setback.
