    Beers are BITTER, not Sour. Different taste buds..

    In Australia, Bitter is part of a beers name such as Victoria Bitter (VB), or Melbourne Bitter.

    Am I missing something? Are there new beers...

    Hi, I think that you should ask this question in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. This is more a mechanical question rather than a fitting question.

    165mm cranks are still way long for the average short person of say 5' 3". 700c wheels are too big for their bikes as well. I built a custom bike with 140mm cranks and 650c wheels. Despite the...

    I know this is FOO and any serious answer may get this thread moved :rolleyes:, however, toe overlap on small bikes is because the cranks are too long for the riders leg length and the wheels are too...

    Your not going to have a lot of luck with different options for a 25.4mm (1") clamp size. Thats an old, old standard. 31.8mm is the new standard, and before that 26mm was the standard. Your going...

    Well, maybe in this case you would be better off with 165mm cranks. The shorter cranks will enable the saddle to be set further back for the KOPS position, which will take the weight off your hands...

    If your actual inseam is about 820mm rather than 787mm then yes, you can use longer cranks than 165mm. 170mm would be good although 165mm may still work for you well.

    Also I don't think that KOPS...

    Cranks change everything. A fitting that works with one length of cranks doesn't work the same with a different length of cranks. I wouldn't trust ANY fitting data that has you with only 2-3 cm of...

    Your short inseam is throwing a spanner in the works for the fit calculator and I don't think its giving you good advice.

    A saddle setback of 1.7-2.1 cm is ridiculous. That's a time trialling...

    I haven't done the maths but the fact that the Votec DOES have a half a degree slacker seat tube angle should add up. If the seat tube angles were the same then I would be concerned. Half a degree...

    Well that sounds good. I'd still want to compare the seat tube angles between the 2 frames just to make sure everything adds up. The Votec, going by the figures should have a more relaxed(lower...

    So far I think that you are right. You should however also consider saddle setback. More saddle setback will take the weight off your hands and shoulders which I think is usually a good thing and...

    You need to study the geometries between the bikes you are considering carefully.

    WSD, as IMPLEMENTED is next to meaningless. Its a marketing term rather than something meaningful.

    I'm pretty close to the same size and proportions to your friend. There are NO adult bikes that are anything like the right size. I have a custom road bike with 650c wheels, 125-140mm cranks and a...

    My best guess is that it would have been a "Cask strength" Whiskey or otherwise called Overproof.

    The vast majority of spirits these days are sold at 40% alcohol by volume. "Proof" is 50% alcohol...

    I'm a BIG single malt Scotch fan.

    Lets clear up some misinformation. Your typical, "blended" scotch is a blend of a single malt (i.e., Malted) Scotch and some nasty, un-malted grain whisky. The...

    From what I can find its only the shims for those levers. What I wanted to add is that the curves designed into the handlebars make a GREAT difference to how far you have to reach to the levers. ...

    If your femur gets anywhere near level at the top of the stroke then your cranks are WAY too long.

    Well its not standard practice.

    Are you 5'5" in height or less by chance? You sound like you have fit issues but I'm not sure where to start.

    Your question is incomplete. Are you talking about adjusting handlebar height?

    I don't know where else the spacers are. The seat and handlebars are independent so you don't adjust the seat...
