that hurts my prostate just looking at it
3T Integra stem and garmin mount, a bit weighty at 195g
http://www.bikerumor.com/2014/02/21/...our-sit-bones/the idea is to help the cyclist evenly distribute pressure across the two ischia (sit bones) and, to a lesser extent, the perineum.Their research showed that even when most cyclists felt comfortable, their weight was unevenly distributed across these areas, which led to decreased long term comfort and performance…The fin simply helps situate the rider properly. They say if you can feel it, you’re not positioned right. It’s not meant to, um, divide and conquer. There’s no need for your bike fitter to say “bend over and spread ‘em”. It’s simply there to facilitate a good position.How it works with existing chamois pads remains to be seen – we doubt they’re designed with this sort of stretch in mind, but could make for an interesting test.
I'm not quite sure if Valentines Day is over.

I recently purchased Hero MTB
bianchi10 started a thread about them http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...tures-and-info)
A whole new array of stuff for my commuter:
Shimano 3N72 Dynamo hub
Mavic XM317 rims for both front and rear
Wheelsmith DB spokes
XT M770 V-Brakes
XT M786 Rear Derailleur - 10 speed Dyna Sys
Deore M591 Shifters
Deore M610 Brake levers
Deore 11-34 Cassette
KMC 10 sp Chain
Planet Bike clip-on fenders
Busch & Muller CYO Premium dynamo light.
It rides like a brand new bike now. It was a 1990 Trek 7000 that I upgraded and it was mostly all original LX 7sp gear. Some of it is still on the bike. I did all the work myself, including building the wheels. The rear was built on the original LX hub.
I went to order a set of the black one today for my buddy, but they are out of stock of the black sets in the US for now.
Do they work as well as 6800's
No they don't. I replaced a set of those with 6800's and braking improved with less effort. The Planet X are good brakes but I get more stopping confidence with the 6800's just not as sexy looking.
I would own them again though if I wanted to go for the looks and still have reasonable braking .
