    While on the top, I've been reading quite a bit online about most people seeming to really HATE the stock Allez saddles from this time period. Any advice on a good replacement saddle (without really knowing anything about my "sit bones")? I've never been fitted and, as this is my first road bike, I've never ridden with any other saddles.
    Try and find an LBS that will let you "demo" saddles to you find one you like. Any Specialized dealer should have a ass-o-meter to measure your sit bones. I am not sure if the other manufacturers list that dimension on the saddles but the specialized ones come in several sizes of each model depending on your sit bone width. I know that the Toupe is very popular here amongst the BF regulars, but it isn't the only option.

    BTW great looking bikes on this page you guys.

    CAAD9 5, all 105 except for a new Ultegra 6700 chain.



    Upgrades in the near future are Ultegra shifters, the seat (I loooooove that OEM San Marco, and it's a beautiful seat (works with the color scheme absolutely perfectly), even though I've heard bad things.. it's atrocious in anything other than cycling shorts, but I never ride it without them and I'm sure all low profile seats are like that. It's just taken a scrape or two and that's starting to bother me. That and the silver painted-on logo towards the front disintegrated within the first 400km. Recommendations for cleaning a white saddle in the mean time, and for a similar color/style saddle in a couple months? The shifters are next because I just had my 105 FD shifter die after about 2000km, which is very disappointing. I got lucky with the LBS and they replaced it 2 months after the end of the 1 year warranty.
    >2500k and not a single flat. I don't think it's fair to knock on wood anymore. (update feb 7 2011: whoops)
    2009 Cannondale CAAD5 (white), stock Shimano 105 pretty much everything. Slowly Ultegra-izing, so far: the chain.
    early 90's Peugeot Success, the city commuter (wanna help finding a date on this one?)

    I use simple green spray to clean my white saddles and bar tape and it works great. I've heard good things about the magic erasers too.

    My new bike

    I just bought this new Fuji SL-1 Comp. I was previously riding a Specialized Allez. Not a very good picture, unfortunately, as I couldn't find my camera and had to use the cellphone to take it.

    After looking at the pic's of the bikes, it won't hold a candle against most of the bikes you guys/girls ride; however, I really enjoy my Roubaix Expert.

    It's taking me a long time to adapt to the Rival shifting after using Shimano brifters for 10+ years. I am still improving after almost a year on the Rivals.

    2002 Merlin Extralight.

    i've posted this before, but i've changed so much on it that i think it warrants another post.

    the build is as follows... 2002 merlin extralight frame, reynolds ouzo pro full carbon fork, dura ace 7800 crank (w/ ultegra big ring), brakes, RD, FD, shifters and cables, ultegra 12-27 cassette, 105 chain, miche supertype post, bontrager rxxxl stem, easton ea70 bars, specialized toupe 143 ti rails, speedplay zero pedals, easton ea90 slx wheels, bontrager rxl tires and deda tape. blackburn flea front and rear lights and bontrager rxl cages.


    "...I thought about evening when the boys wash up, sing, eat, raise a cup of wine in honor of love and life, and waiting at the door, the bicycle, stilled, because only moving does it have a soul, and fallen there it isn't a translucent insect humming through summer but a cold skeleton that will return to life only when it's needed, when it's light, that is, with the resurrection of each day." -- Pablo Neruda

    Thanks Yaniel,

    you'd be surprised what I had to go through to find a decent post. I had issues with posts slipping no matter what i did, i first tried a bontrager rxl carbon post, no dice, in fact the slipping pretty much chewed off all the clearcoat from the post, i tried an american classic ti post, same deal, i used liquid torque on the carbon post and no help... i found this post (miche supertype) at some hipsterish sorta shop selling fixed gear bikes (predominantly) in brooklyn. it's on the heavy side @ a bit over 260 grams but not a single issue since i installed it.

    i also tried a thomson post which was very harsh on my posterior. this, also being alloy is a bit more forgiving.
