    I thought wingspan = height was the ideal. At least that's what they taught us in Art History class while you engineer types were crunching numbers. Anyway, it's an interesting discussion.

    I used Naval Jelly on that area, then sanded it down to bare metal before touch-up. The finished view is in post #28 . It was pretty gnarly though so I'll keep my eye on it.

    I have a laundry follow-up. I washed one (cold wash/cold rinse) and dried it on the second-highest heat setting. Very little shrinkage. If someone was really hoping for a size L in black (which are...

    This is really a ymmv subject. I doubt I will ever buy tires again that are smaller than 25. I find the pressure necessary in a 23 makes the ride harsher than I prefer, with no discernible upside....

    I think what Grand Bois was suggesting is taking a Dremel or similar tool and elongating the existing mounting slot so the pad can sit lower. I don't see anything wrong with the suggestion.

    So then both black and red cleats would be Delta, but only the red ones would be Delta Arc.

    So are you saying that Arc is a pedal, rather than a cleat designation? That I have old Look Free Arc pedals and they take Delta cleats, and that both red and black cleats would be called Delta?

    I'm curious about this as well. Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably, and sometimes the cleats are referred to as "Look Delta Arc cleats".

    Ime the Merino stuff doesn't usually shrink the way lambswool or cashmere would. ymmv.

    Sizing is confusing. The seller says they run big and OP seems to be saying the opposite.

    Omg, in traffic. I get that he's doing everything he can to be non-aero, but did he put a massive preload on his wheel bearings or something? It's hard to believe he doesn't have more speed than that...

    I believe it's a mind thing, unless you have unusually poor balance. As long as you have some speed, the bike wants to stay upright and move forward.
