    http://punainenparooni.com/ <--- love this blog. Not long, but well done, I think. Not too nuts (i.e. DC Rainmaker), but not too bland.

    Not track specific but....this saddle seems like a good choice for those on bumpy tracks, people do seem to like the CPC thingy and it seems to work. My local track on the 4th turn has made me get out of the saddle a couple of times o_O

    I cant see it on that photo but been meaning to ask - on the stayer bikes you often see a rod (or something) coming from the front of the bars down to the front of the forks - what is it for?
