wow. first off this is my first real new bike. i cannot believe how much better it is than that ol' clunky univega.
anyway. went on my first long ride with her today, about 10-15 miles, but i guess closer to 20. pretty much perfect. i wore just some adidas soccer shorts and a tee. lemme tell you, for long rides as such, i think i might have to give in to spandex. i was hurtin', not to mention the wedgie factor. lame. but still, better than jeans, right??!! right?!?!
now the seatpost, as you may or may not know, the volpe comes with some sorta suspension post. a lot of people said it is crappy. i thought i'd give it a whirl to see for myself. and yes crappy.
now, can anyone recommend a good cheap seatpost? i'm not even sure what the best material would be. i'm not in the mood for carbon though.
also, when i rode today i noticed a click! click! everytime i stood up and powered up a hill. is this just a common adjustment on a new bike? or something i should worry about.
thanks for any advice..!
ps, clipless is amazing.
