    I guess so. It is wear I am comfortly balanced. this has a 73 seat if I were to buy new instead of used I think I would go with a slacker angel so I could use a more normal seat post. I am not a big fan of the way this FSA looks but I think it is the only option with that much setback, unless I get a Bold custom made.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. It's hard to get the seat back far enough for me on some of my bikes. My Look has a 72.5 angle with the seat all the way back on a majorly setback post and it's just right.

    Here are my two bikes. I think it was time to share mine since I have very much enjoyed seeing the bikes the the other members have shared.

    I do not seem to be able to link the pictures in directly. Any help offered would be appreciated.

    Open them in a separate window and link to that new site.

    I have never seen a Serotta in Appleton other than my own. We should ride next time I'm there for a haircut and visit to my folks.

    My 80-year old father is at the Packer game right now. I think it's the bears who are polluting Green Bay (Titletown) this time.

    Here's my Serotta Colorado Legend CRL on Labor Day 2009 on my ride around Lake Winnebago. This bike is everything you'd expect a steel Serotta to be - heavy, solid and satisfying to ride.

    I wish I had had this bike when I was racing real races.


    Here's the CIII after the last brewery ride of the year, which turned into an 11PM rain ride home. This ride is not everything everyone expects a Serotta to be - nimble, pretty light, ill-fitting (it wasn't built for me) and extremely satisfying to ride. Believe it or not, contact points are nearly identical on the two.

    I wish I had had this even more when I was racing real races. Welded steel bikes make terrific bikes. Welding probably has little to do with it other than the fact that the tubes are oversized compared to my lugged bikes. Smooth as silk ride, but stiff.
    I know you've seen it before, but it gets ridden a lot and is worth showing as it's ridden, and dripping water and filthy, not just up against the garage door with clean, pretty tape.
    We do ride these beasts, don't we?

    Here's my fender setup.

    It might not be pretty, but it works.

    I mentioned the bottle thing before and here it is. I even put my battery in the other bottle to keep it drier. There is a gap between the bottom of the bottles and the battery so even any water that gets in there will not soak the battery. I put a drain hole at the bottom.

    The other contains 2 tubes and a lever.

    I don't ride with the battery/light when I'm training so I will always have one cage open on longer rides. My commute is only 12 miles each way so no need. If I need it, the tubes/lever goes in the pocket for two bottles or if I need the light.

    I broke the left inner lever so I replaced it with a spare Chorus one I had and was no longer using. It's not pretty, but it's all I had.

    This is my all go and no show bike. Road racing is over and time for cross baby!!

    Eric, I love it. That thing is a McGuyver Special, right down to the duct tape holding your bar tape in place.

    Eric, Grant gave me this idea on fender stays with my Co-Mo http://www.velocipedesalon.com/forum...ead.php?t=9726.

    Once you get them set, mark them off and cut them off so no over-hang.

    Sorry to hijack. Love the bike set-up.

    Nice bike. I have a Cd'A too, but was thinking of putting some Rolfs on my Vamoots.

    How do you like the Vigors?

    Here's my Cd'A. Not crazy about the geometry anymore but it did get me through some back and neck injuries.

    "I LOVE the orange CDA!"

    Thanks, I have a weakness for Dream Sickle desserts, thus the color scheme!

    "How do you like the Vigors"

    I like the wheels, although I have only had them on for about 600 or so miles. They ride a little more firmly than my hand built wheels but nothing objectionable. They are very smooth and I notice the speed difference in group riding. I thought I was getting a creak somewhere in the back wheel but it was only the skewer as it shut up when oiled. The brake tracks are not totally smooth (slight waiveness to them) but changing from the stock Shimano pads to Kool Stop took care of the problem. The stock Shimano bads would shudder against the brake tracks no matter what the amount of bad toe used.

    The strongest sensation I can give is smooth and fast but I do not have much to compare it to other than the various hand built wheels I have built. This is the only set of aero wheels I have used. They are not harsh as compared to my hand built wheels. I have been doing group rides this year that tended to be rather fast and the aero effect is noticeable in that setting.

    Do I notice any effect at 20 mph - could not really tell you. Do I notice a positive effect at 35+ mph, yes.
