I second a nice trike. A trike vs bike won't make any difference in being teased by kids. The ones who are going to do that will do it regardless.

Well, I ordered a 150th Ann. B33. I'd probably order 3 of them if I could afford it.

Well, the rear springs don't concern me as the windings are parallel to the horizontal plane. But for the front spring, the windings are parallel to the vertical plane, meaning if the spring snaps, a...

Eh, all the mountain-specific saddles I've seen look like they're designed for people with narrow butts.

I'd love an electric fixed gear with an e-skid lever. Just squeeze the lever and it locks up the back wheel. I guess that would be like a brake, though. Damn.

It's like anal sex vs. vaginal sex. One feels like you're riding on rails, the other feels loose and sloppy. But both still feel pretty good.

I've heard the thigh rubbing thing. But I may want to chance it. Just put a B190 on my touring bike, and it's very cushiony. Kind of want to try the B33 on the fixed gear and see how it does. Ever...

Giant front spring on Brooks dangerous to your nuts?

B190 feels really comfortable, but I'm wondering if I should be concerned about this front spring. What are the chances it'll break and stab me in the nuts?

Or maybe a B190?

If so, how's it ride on the mountain trails?

Upon closer inspection of the B33, I don't think two Breezer adapters will work. I believe one will fit through the top and middle rails, but not the middle and bottom rails, due to the bolt arc in...

How about some 3000mm flat handle bars? You can just clothes line everyone who comes at you as well as everyone you pass.

Not sure if the rails are thinner on the multi-rail saddles. Would make sense, though.

In any case, the Breezer adapter and Kalloy seat post were roughly the same price. Could have gone either way.

Thanks for the replies on the B33. After my test ride today on my B67, I actually decided to just order the B190. I didn't care too much for the textured surface of the B67, and since the B190 was...

I've taken my bike on Marta before when I did the Georgia ride to the capitol. Depending on how crowded the train gets, it can be a real pain.

Don't take it personally. If I told them of my plans to put a Brooks B190 on my fixed gear and cruise down the local sidewalks with my handlebars higher than my saddle, I'd get flack, too.
