    Syllables in your replies
    To check for haiku

    I betcha it's 26.6 if there's as little play as you describe. Just picked this guy up to use on a build after discovering that none of my seatposts fit >.< XLC 26 6 Bicycle Seatpost with Clamp 350mm...

    Wellp, methinks I've figured it out. This appears to be a Performance TR1000 frame. The bikes in the following frame match mine to a tee as far as I can tell:...

    That's where the "make a box around the box out of packing tape" technique comes into play :D

    Ha, I didn't think it'd last that long! Oh, and the use count was actually 2 when I made the counter, I was trying to make tallies :lol:

    Oh, and please re-add me.

    @rubic Thankfully, there's nothing that resembles a canyon round these parts, then :D Seriously though, is it that bad? I read into the characteristics of titanium before making the purchase and did...
  13. What the crap did I just buy? (Titanium frame content)

    Hiya folks,

    So a while back I discovered that, potentially from a standing-on-the-trainer related fault of my own, the rear triangle on my road frame was wonked to the NDS by about 3mm. Still...

    That's what I paid for mine, although it came with racks and fenders. I'd say you did quite well!

    I'm a fan of the Nitto B115, though I've been feeling the itch to try a compact bar as of late. I've got the B115 on my commuter as well as my road bike.

    Sounds like the freewheel or freehub (depending on how your bike is equipped) may have some pawls that are failing to engage. What bike is it?

    @ksryder :eek: Yikes, sounds like you're speaking from experience. Duly noted :lol:

    Well, I think it's about time for an update. We spent 2 days getting everything dialed in. It took us a day to confirm that she didn't like the bars and saddle that came on the bike, and another day...

    Good suggestions everyone! Confirmed the sit bone measurment, right around 130mm. We ended up going to the LBS and she picked out a saddle which matched this width. They have a great return policy,...
