    There are a handful of steel bikes being raced competitively. Those are usually custom bikes. Custom fit trumps an ill-fitting bike of any material. It's usually the lighter riders that ride steel as they don't flex the frame enough to need aluminum or carbon.

    Then there is the "steel is real" crowd that ride a standard geometry in steel when they could just as easily get a standard geometry in lighter and stiffer aluminum for the same $. It doesn't do them any good.

    Also, it amazes me how some people think that anything older must be better. But, that comes from hipster values being that anything old and rare is something that another person probably won't have so it is automatically more valuable. If it's foreign it's even MORE valuable.

    Varicose veins. You know you just want to touch them; it's highly contagious, so think before you do.

    thanks Scrod, I will try out the hardshells, I already have some experience with gatorskins.

    Crash fest today...sad day for many riders, including Vinokouruv.

    Though, this is kind of lulz.

    Carleton,

    Is it ok to run 28-spoke 2x lacing on the street.

    And what is your opinion of 7710 DA hubs for the street as well? (urban environment with occasional rain and potholes)

    How hard is it to spell his name? I think some people are starting to do it on purpose. Carleton is a great guy and he deserves respect. The least you can do is spell his name right.

    Interwebs doesn't receive respect.

    It would have been funny if you accidentally spelled his name wrong when telling other people to respect him.

    When you say that you can't get the seat exactly where you want it, what do you mean? Let's say you were in a neutral position in the saddle riding down a flat street. Do you find yourself sliding forward or back involuntarily? Do you find yourself voluntarily scooting backwards or forwards?

    It also may help to put your bike in a stationary trainer and make minor adjustments in a controlled environment instead of on the street.

    My bad. I really don't like to be mean & I hope we don't have any hard feelings.

    Most of the time I find myself sliding back voluntarily. So, I tried moving the saddle back on it's rails, but then the nose points up. Is the fix as simple as buying a new seatpost or a longer stem???

    You can adjust the angle of your saddle, too, you know.

    Can you not simply move the saddle back without the nose tilting? Can you not simply adjust the tilt of the saddle?

    Also, your stem has nothing to do with this. The relationship between your butt and the bottom bracket is set first. Then you set your relationship between the bars/hands and your butt. The saddle placement is the anchor of your bike fit.

    No, for some reason, when i move the saddle back, the nose tilts up. There is no "tilt" feature on the seatpost that came stock with this bike- Kalloy- SP-248D, 27.2mm. Does that make sense?

    Though I've been riding for a couple years, I'm just getting into components and mechanics, (hope to build some wheels someday as well... it's good to have goals) all that to say, if i'm missing something, i wouldn't be surprised.
