    I read the Peter White article, which reinforced what I already know about fitting.

    I also used the Zinn fit calculator, and interestingly the results corresponded almost perfectly with the stock...

    Already using the VO seat post... Thinking about a 64cm Soma ES, although I do think I would prefer the slacker seat angle of the San Marcos...
  3. Steel frame with relaxed geometry for tall rider with long femurs?

    My current road bike is too small for me (62cm Soma Smoothie). By my estimation, I need a 64cm seat tube and 600ish mm theoretical top tube. I would like more relaxed geometry as well, such as a 72.5...

    I use the Parley's Summit panniers as well as a set of Lone Peak Foothill panniers. Both are great, although I prefer the vertical strapping system of the Foothills. Lone Peak quality is high, and I...

    Which is why you should be making other people's decisions for them, right? That's what this thread is about, isn't it? You trying to tell other people what to do and not do?

    1995 Ibis Easy Street

    That is what I have here, isn't it? It was passed onto my wife and I and unfortunately does not fit us. I believe it is a 58/52. It's a super nice ride and in amazing condition. I believe it came...

    I don't think leveling your rack will give you more heel clearance. Just by looking at it you can tell that leveling it will bring it forward, reducing your heel clearance.

    To be honest, your only...

    In heavy rain I wear a lightweight nylon hat with full bill under my helmet. Keeps my hair relatively dry and water out of my eyes.

    Can I recommend v-brakes instead of cantilevers? I have used the CR-720 brakes and the Avid SD-7 brakes on my LHT are way more powerful -- important while hauling a heavy touring load. You would,...

    I also have been considering the Overdrive Elites. I haven't been able to find many firsthand reviews. The tread looks similar to Marathon XR to me. Nice weight.

    I switched from 2.0 Big Apples to 1.5 Panaracer Paselas -- much lighter, livelier, and they certainly feel faster.

    Your Milano, which is super sweet, is too heavy and clunky for a whole whopping *6* miles each way? It's such a pig you can't manage to pedal it for 20 minutes? That's in your head, brother,...

    I keep telling people the Ergon pedals are huge and ugly, but comfortable and very supportive. I like the large platform and the inside lip for foot alignment, as well as the grip surface.
