    Dial tone did not mention anything about a bike shop and the way they set up the bike...he mentioned the way the riders have their bikes set up. So I stand by my post and, frankly, after being a member here for almost 2 years it is getting a bit tiresome seeing posts from all of these "know it alls." Just let people ride their bikes the way they are comfortable unless said people ask for your opinion. I had someone comment about my bar set up a while back and told the "gentleman" that I have my bars set up the way they are the most comfortable...after trying many positions. It was not his concern, nor anyone else's how often I ride in the drops. I did not ask for his opinion, and I do not like unsolicited advice...do you?

    Cheers,

    It all depends on the terrain for me. When it comes to cruising I'll split my time between the drops and hoods. Sprints are primarily in the drops. Climbing on the flats or hoods.

    At 6'3" 210, I find the fit quite comfortable, but as my style and form progresses I'm sure adjustments will be necessary.

    32 miles yesterday.

    Still tweaking the fit...but it's pretty comfortable so far.

    Thanks. It used to have a white perforated Flite (back when the bike was purple no less), but I wore through it over time. Haven't been able to find another one as I think they've stopped making them. I REALLY prefer the perforated white over the solid white, as the perforations seem to breathe better and not look dirty (even when they are).

    Possibly. I've been meaning to rest my bum on one of those. I'll probably do that when I check out some Specialized shoes.

    Hey Bri,

    Didn't mean to get you all hot and bothered, but what do you expect on a forum other than people commenting on the bikes they see? "Wow, neat bike." gets a little old, don't you think? I was simply stating that the bar position was incorrect, and it is. It doesn't take a "know it all" to know that. Whether you ride for fun or profit your bike should be set up correctly to avoid injury and poor handling...that's just a fact.

    Ok newbie....let me try.....how can a bar that is in the position that is most comfortable for the owner and rider of the bike be in the incorrect position?

    If it works for him...it shouldn't matter to the know it alls.

    That's what we call a fact.

    My recently updated Rob Stowe Columbus SL road bike.





    The frameset was probably built between 1989 and 1991. I began working in a bike shop in 1992 and bought the frameset from there in 1993. Stowe bikes were handbuilt by Robert Stowe and Dale DuRoss in upstate New York under a company called Phase 3 Cycles. I am not sure how long they produced frames for.

    I just finished upgrading to a full Shimano Ultegra 6600 10 speed STI group with Chris King/DT Swiss wheels. The original build was a full Shimano Ultegra 600 6400 8 Speed STI group. The only reason I upgraded was because the original right STI lever died after 12 years of use.

    Sorry but I do not mean to sound like a jerk. If the bar position is comfortable for the rider then it is not incorrect. You do not know the situation of the person riding the bike therefore you have no idea what is correct for the rider. Until you do, perhaps you may want to refrain from such comments. And before you say that so and so shoud be riding a flat bar or something else remember, it is their money to do with as they please. If I had listened to all of the know it alls in here I would have bought a steel or Ti or carbon fiber speedster with a 53/39 double and an 11-23 rear instead of the aluminum triple that I do ride. One thing for sure is that I wouldn't be actually RIDING it since it is not "correct" for me. Why can't some of you guys let others just ride their bikes and enjoy them. I ride my bike with the setup that is comfortable for me....not the way others say is the correct way. You may be tired of seeing "Wow, neat bike!" I am not. I just enjoy looking at other people's bikes and if I dont't think it is a "neat bike" I just don't say it. I will not sit and try to point out to the rider what is "wrong" with it. To me THAT is what gets old. So, again, I stand by my reply.

    Cheers,

    Brian

    shimano 535's ... pulled them off of a CycloCross Bike.

    they've been great wheels, and I'm a heavier rider. Absolutely no problems with flex, but I climb in the saddle.
