What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What road bike do you have?

You got a pro fit and your seat is angled down like that?

Seems odd, I know. But it fits me perfectly.

If you want to, a white saddle would look sexy with that bike.

Those wheels really make that bike. If you were riding Ksyriums or those Specialized Rovals under it I'd hate it. Well done!

You need to be re-fitted by someone else. With a proper fit, your saddle should not be tilted like that, it should be level.

Incorrect.


Every ass is different. Some saddles are more comfortable up, some are more comfortable down...that's why they can be tilted.

Hi, I'm new to this forums, these are my bikes:

2006 Jumpertrek, bought it used last week, I know, it's not top of the notch ride, but it features Campagnolo Xenon group, Miche Team brakes and drive train, Rodi Stylus Racing rims. Previous owner "pimped" it a bit, so it's got a carbon seat post and a shorter stem. Selle San Marco seat. Also, its been painted black over the parts that featured ugly jumpertrek stickers and red-white color combos. Tyres are still stock Vittoria Zaffiro. The bike's size is 56, I'm around 176cm in height and it fits me nicely, the seat is also great.




And now for some vintage stuff...

198x Rog Senior, size 60 (too big for me), but I still love to ride it, the back derailer is missing some parts so the chain falls down too frequently, I need to go to some local junkyard sale to find an old Favorit derailers... The bike is all steel of course, indestructible, 2x5 gears.

Its called a stem.

Nice bike by the way, and welcome to the forums!
