Converting road frame for TT use - seatpost and a few other things
Hi guys -
I am getting into TTs and my initial plan was to get a nice TT frameset. However, I have decided to convert a road frame I got for really cheap into a TT bike for now, and get a nicer frame later.
I have an Al seatpost with a slight setback - I was thinking of flipping it, so that it is set forward. This will steepen my effective STA. There have been a couple of other posts on it here at BF and no one seems to think it is a bad idea, but I thought I'd check and see anyway.
Any other tweaks that you guys recommend/suggest?
