First Ride on N+1

We went out today for a short 12 mile ride. Stopped to lower saddle, but something still not right.

Goodness, I love the way she rides and handles! We have an appointment tomorrow for get fitted buy the best in the area. She just might turnout the THE one, and not N+1

Like usual Bene Sugg : Brooks work better level or nose up a smidge. your hands get too much pressure,
Always pushing your butt back up that slope.

I have had a Brooks Pro since 1975, still have it. Euro toured on it several times. multiple month trips.
