Make sure you have a saddle that fits your anatomy. A saddle too wide or too narrow can make a short ride seem very long. Monitor how you feel after 30 minutes, 60 minutes, etc. Make sure the...

Thanks! I like it too but I never ride it. I'm either on my Tarmac or my Bianchi fixed gear. I've ridden the Cinelli 1 time in the last 10 months.

I chose to do a painful hill repeat workout instead of doing the Westend ride. I hope everyone had a great ride. The weather was great even with the wind coming out of the south.

Cool! That sounds good, Jon! If it's colder than 35 degrees at 8:15, which is the time I would need to leave my house, I'm out. I'm also out if it's raining or if rain is predicted.
