    Score!!

    I have been drooling over this for a year but didn't have the $1200+
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/230701202985...#ht_720wt_1396
    just nabbed this deal, I love the gaudy scheme, not so much for the 2011...
    Hope it is as good as advertised!!

    I'm surprised that Prep Stand can hold it.

    I know, the thing is a tank! I knocked 10 pounds off it by going fixed but it's still a tank, I love my tank!

    Really, though...that's a good deal on that Masi.

    If I remember correctly, MSRP for the Fixed Ultimate was somewhere around $1200.

    Man, what is your inseam measurement? That saddle is WAY up there, and that is NOT a small frame by any means!,,,,BD

    30", to which bike are you referring?

    I'm 99% certain Bikedued is asking about your actual inseam, not your jeans inseam.

    Then there's no possible way you ride that 25 inch Schwinn, not with that saddle height anyway?,,,,BD

    This is it finished, does the saddle look lower?

    So what gives? You have got a 32 inseam, correct? I know for a fact that size frame measures 25 inches along the seat tube. That leaves 7 inches of inseam left over. the cranks are at least that long by themselves from the pedal to the center of the crank. Then you have your four inches of seatpost +/-, then another two inches of saddle +/-. The numbers don't add up, unless you're seriously tiptoed while riding it? Not to mention it is grossly misadjusted with the nose of the saddle that high. I am not saying it's not a cool bike, but?,,,,BD

    For reference, a properly adjusted Concor saddle.....

    I don't know, it rides comfortably. Here is a different angle of the stable, do the rest look off?


    As for the seat, you can see they are all like that, it feels best that way. The only possible explanation I have come up with is the nut I lost a few years back...

    Yeah, it would be safe to say that I would be going numb on any of those bikes within about 5 minutes of riding.,,,,BD

    I made 130 miles, my longest ride so far, on the CrossCheck and it was all good.
    Apologies if it bugs you but it works for me. As far as your math, I get it but I never really measured everything and just adjusted everything from my fit.

    Got it!!








    It was missing some stem bolts so I can't ride it until I get those, not complaining since I got a good deal and it came in less than a week!
