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

Why would mechanical components make it hotter than it already is?

"Selle" is not a saddle manufacturer, you know. There's at least four completely different saddle manufacturers that I can think of off the top of my head which have the word "selle" in their name.

Thank you all very much.

I've had the Rails for a bit and they are truly all that. The electric is new to me, and so far, I like it. The bike itself feels pretty sporty, but the weather isn't real conducive for a real ride yet.

I was referring to Selle Italia and used the shortened version that I would with friends. And yes, actually they are a saddle manufacturer. But that wasn't my point at all… it was that there are a lot of people who would put a saddle manufactured by a saddle company on their bikes but not one built by another bike manufacturer.

And his point was that there is no company called "Selle". There is "Selle Italia", "Selle SMP", "Selle San Marco" among many more. In fact, "selle" is just Italian for "saddle."

Again, thank you all kindly!

Standard spacers, with no taper. Roller ride last night, and the electric was quite easy to get used to.

<sigh> Yes, I got it. Yes. Ok. Registered. And I even knew the meaning of the word Selle in Italian.
I just sometimes forget that the middle name of this thread is 'pedantic'…
