    Kilo WT first ride

    IMG_20140303_154015263.jpg

    As you can see no snow, I have the handlebar as far as it would go, probably need to push the saddle up may be an inch. It fitted very well. I set it up singlespeed, fixed gear can wait.

    I put the as supplied pedals on to get going, big mistake. The right one semi seized on me after a few miles. I knew I should have junked them. the only thing I can think of is that backed away when I back pedalled and did not tighten up.

    I have chain tugs coming, not really needed.

    Water Bottle cage to put on.

    Phone strap to put on.

    Saddle yet to decide. Brooks seems the obvious.

    Pedals I have but realistically I want walking friendly type that I do not currently have.

    I've always loved the look of Cannondales. Awesome looking bike.

    My new Cannondale, mostly done. Trying out these bars and stem I had in the shop. Pretty sure the 8cm stem is too short, hence the lack of tape.
    wow I just got into your pedal room very randomly

    After over 40 years of freewheeling, I decided to try a fixed. Enter the Fyxation Eastside. Nothing too expensive. Just good enough to tell me if this is the direction I want to head.

    It's a pump that fits under the top tube. It's saved me a few times already, but after switching to using Gatorskin (front) + Rubino (rear) I have yet to use it.

    I agree, I don't know how much I would like a just plain white bike.

    Good first choice. Now lower your saddle and pull it back a touch. Actually, maybe a foot.

    Replaced the OEM Bianchi saddle that was totally torn up with my Tioga Spyder, which is a butt torture rack. Also, geared down to 46 x 17 for street use.

    Yeah. I haven't played with the fit yet. It's still hovering around 0 degrees Fahrenheit in the morning, and I'm not exactly anxious to expose a brand new bike to all of the road salt. It may be a few weeks before it goes on the road.

    The seat post height was solely determined by me getting my leg almost fully extended at the end of the pedal stroke. Just a quick starting point. Moving the seat back and forth may change that a bit, but I don't expect it to change too much. I'm only 5' 10" tall but have wicked long legs (34" inseam) and a short upper body. It makes it hard to find a bike that fits me perfectly. I opted for the 55cm frame, as my arms might not have been long enough for the 58cm frame and bullhorns. Hopefully, when all is said and done, I won't end up with a giant stack of headset spacers.

    Rear breaks are soon to go also. I don't see myself ever running single speed on the Fyxation. I already have plenty of bikes with freewheels.
