You have a great stable BTW.

Haha thanks, I do absolutely understand what you mean. I picked up the frame a size smaller then I wanted but it was too good of a deal to pass up.

Took delivery of a leftover '13 Bianchi Zurigo for extended off-season training so I can have an even better '14 on my track/race bike. :-)

Nice.
What size is the frame, did you get it fitted?
Looks a bit big for you the be honest.

ANORXIC51 10-21-13 06:45 PM

Possibly may be a size too big. But the LBS did a basic fit on the floor and with the trainer for standover and seat height. I'm about 6'0" @ 165 lbs, so pretty slender with "Scottie Pippen arms". Did a couple of 20 min test street rides before taking delivery and did a 40 min ride yesterday of a mix of pavement and gravel. :-) He told me to come back in a couple hundred miles or so or 30 days for the tune up and to make adjustments /suggestions for fit as needed.

I'm brand new to cycling, and being on the Duc for a couple of seasons has already gotten me used to being on a torture rack, lol. But honestly so far I have no complaints with fit or comfort. We'll see once I start getting some miles under my belt on it. But for now the arms feel relaxed, starting to get used to the clipless pedal routine, feel in control coming up to/waiting at stop signs (unclip one foot upon approach and stand over the top tube until I get going again).

Its all good. It just seems your seat post is a bit low.
I tend to go up a size with my CXers too, only my race rigs are the proper size. I like to train/commuter on larger bikes so I avoid toe overlap.

Here's mine, a 1996 Bianchi Reparto Corse. Made in Italy, Dedecciai Zero Uno tubing. I bought it used and ran it as a commuter / road bike for years, but I'm doing my first 'cross race tomorrow and I just finished getting it set up to race this morning.

I saw you and your bike today but I was either almost puking after my race or drinking bourbon and didn't get to say hello. Did you have fun?

Yep. It survived the race anyways. I clear coated the bottom of the crown, tomorrow I'll take a close look at it and see any of the cracks have grown.

Yeah that was hella fun! I was pretty whipped at the end too, and had to split with my family pretty quick so no bourbon for me. Bike held up well but I had a few issues. Right before the race, I was adjusting the position of my left thumbie and discovered the mounting bolt hole was stripped - argh! I used some zip ties to hold it in place, but it didn't matter anyways because I never got out of the small ring. I'm thinking of running a one chainring set up for my next race now. I guess if there were faster courses with longer straightaways I might miss the big ring, but I sure didn't need it at Woodland Park today!
