    Here are the first pictures taken, a bit rough but the MAX looks so good. Far from Salon worthy pictures, but it's looking real nice. Did a a shot Hampco style with the PR 27mm's
    and one with the fast wheels on it. This thing is beautiful. Can NOT wait to get on it this weekend. Enjoy.

    Awesome. I love that paint job. The beer penalty may still apply, though.

    I have trouble imagining beer and penalty in the same sentence.

    Finally some daylight rides... Only been doing commutes and errands in the dark lately.


    Cool Max Artie!
    That's some massive saddle setback... looks like the seat clamp is way past the max. on the rails. Looks a bit scary, though but I might be wrong.

    Good catch.. yes it's not correct. Up early this morning getting everything to the right position. Rushed those pics out b/c my beer fines were piling up.
    I wil post some more final pics after this weekend's shake down ride. Might be adjusting the stem height also.
    Love the sofa shot btw. That bike is gorgeous.

    What does that mean in the Netherlands; flat, completely flat or totally flat?

    What I meant was various surfaces. Cobbles, crappy tree root cracked bike paths. Concrete tiled roads, smooth stuff.

    Some weekends I visit my riding buddies in the very south. Actually kinda hilly with some short but steep climbs.
    Super fun to ride there and beautiful scenery.
    Might as well hop in the car a go ride there on sunday and visit my dad...

    that's what an Aliante should look like

    the rails are laid out like a Brooks, your fit is weird if it's *not* slammed back or nearly so

    try the classic test before changing it: Riding tip #2

    I know that the rails on an Aliante sit further back, but if this is set up correctly... (Deda post already has a lot of setback):



    …does that mean that Steve's fit is weird?:

    don't let your eyes deceive you from the way it curves to give access to the second bolt

    that Deda Zero has the absolutely standard geometry: the clamp is 1.5" wide and offset 1" from center

    anything less is "low setback", and much more is quite unusual — I've measured many posts and you rarely get "a lot"

    it means he fusses over his STA and post selection to always hit the middle of the rails on his favorite saddle

    the Sweetpost has 20mm of offset, but the clamp area is so much narrower that it actually has slightly more effective setback than the Deda

    Okay, I took it for a 50km spin, this thing's approved!
    Just wonderful… after 45 minutes I'd gotten used to the handling and found myself diving into corners. No handed riding is absolutely stable, like eating your snack at the table :) Copes with rough surfaces really well. No regrets about choosing the WU fork.

    I think there's no use in keeping my Moots Compact frame now. The SB simply is the better and more versatile bike, and to me it looks cooler too.

    Some more pics:

    Was considering my carbon Syntace P6 to go with the black theme, but thought I'd try the ti Campy post.
    It's a bit of hit and miss to get your seat level, it has that notched clamp. Worked out fine with the SQ Lab though.
    I keep on finding these for good prices so I have a couple of them.

    INDECS: Steely Dan's Pretzel Logic just came through the headphones. Really seems to work with pics of your bike. Thought you'd like to know.

    Makes me want a new pair of Neutron.

    35k km without re-trueing them, without servicing the hub once, but sadly the brake track said it was enough. Next set I won't touch the brake!

    So fine! Well done by all involved. I never get enough of these SBTi's.
