    You need your saddle set farther back from the BB. KOPS is kind of an arbitrary guideline, nobody seems really sure what it offers. The real criterion IMHO is to move your center of gravity back so...

    Do you mean the old ones cannot possibly stop as well, or the old ones cannot stop as well for a given hand force?

    Vintage frames are not all the same, so pay some attention to actual space available with those fenders. I have some 700x28c on CR18 on a 1984 Trek 610, and the fit is tight for SKS P-35 fenders. ...

    This problem with Campy seat posts is made a lot easier with a slotted saddle. It doesn't help with the way the rails fit, but it lets you use a socket wrench like the convenient Hozan 8-9-10 triple...

    I didn't catch that you are now injured - apologies! This is probably not what you are looking for, but it is very possible that a new bike would not be as good for you as your Synapse is. This...

    You clearly have pretty good flexibility, and perhaps would like a lower bar position. You can experiment a bit by removing a stem spacer say 5 mm at a time, or by trying a stem of the same length...

    Is 29" your trouser inseam? Should be your cycling inseam. I think 29 sounds short. It corresponds to 73.7 cm. My height is 5'5.5" and my cycling inseam is 80.7 cm.

    Would you say you have...

    Yes, every one of those tires has some bad press. Personally I would not use a Giro, and I'd use a Rallye with trepidation. But my Giro experience is with tires I bought between 10 and 20 years ago...

    BQ tested a 953 Dave Wages rando bike a few years ago, and a Mike Terraferma in True Temper OX-plat, but it's not stainless.

    I've had a lot of folks who live west of Detroit say this is a very nice, genteel and safe ride. I've been kept from it by work, family and other obligations, but I hope to try it this year at least...

    101, I really like the idea of putting the Ferry into the picture, but I think wife and I are going to do the Shoreline MUP this summer, if I can get the timing sorted out.

    Thanks for sharing Jeff's lecture notes! I wish I had been there.

    From me, a +10 for Jeff at Kinetic. He also has a great early '80s Masi GC hanging on his wall.

    I also give a plus to Jess (formerly at Two Wheel Tango) who now does fittings out of Sic Transit....

    In the spirit of updates, again, I think BikeSport closed several years ago, as well. I no longer work in Dearborn, so it's not convenient for me to go and check it out.

    I think this thread needs updates. I'm sad to say that Cadence Cycles has been closed for several years. I don't know if Angel is still in business somewhere else.

    Good question! One of my bikes where this worked well is a 1980 Woodrup with CS about 43.5 cm.

    Have you actually had bad handling from trying this? What was your geometry?
