    Sorry, can't help it but that was a common bike joke.

    I actually like your bike. My kind of colors too. I have a black Allez with orange saddle, rims, tires and bar tape. My holloween bike

    Looks to be from the pre-Trek era.

    New bikes ahoy! I rode to work and home on Friday on my della santa despite the rain.


    A few more pics w/big versions at http://explosive.net/gallery/biking?page=5. The pics aren't the best because I was late for work and had just dropped the camera in the mud..whoops. But you get the general idea

    Here's my first "true" road bike. Was riding a very flimsy Dawes Lightning DLX (Heavy clunk of metal that it was) until now. Not a Carbon Fiber beast or a class Campagnolo-equipped bike but heck, plenty enough for a 17 year old trying to earn his legs.

    That saddle looks to be FAR off level. When you're riding, do you feel like you're having to reach out for the bar?

    Nope. It's just the tilt of the bike. The rear tire of the bike is resting on the ramp section of the sidewalk so it's a couple inches lower. That's why it looks like it's tilting up. Seat is very very slightly above being parallel to the ground. Can't wait for the weekend to really throw in a long ride.

    I forgot to say that bike looks very nice! I like the polished aluminum look. At 17, I'd have KILLED for a bike that nice.

    WRT saddle angle - I hate to quibble, but in that pic, holding a straightedge from hub center to hub center (level for the bike), the angle of the saddle is at least 5 degrees off of that. It looks like it's parallel to the sloping top tube.

    Still, whatever's comfy. Personally, I find anything more than a degree off of level feels either like I'm reaching out for the bars (nose up), or leaning on them way too much (nose down).
