    The mailman delivered this in many different trips over the past two weeks, but I figured I'd just wait till it was all together. I hope I didn't violate any bar level rules too badly, prioritized the level top ramp over perfectly flat drops.

    Is that a Litespeed ? Your saddle is pointing down, just saying ;)

    Ah, okay, I think I got it. So not like this, right?

    Dang, didn't realize there were rules for saddles too! I only ride Ariones nosed down a few degrees, although since this bike has a pretty serious bar drop, I set it up a wee bit steeper than the others. No complaints so far although I'll probably raise the nose up a bit soon.

    When it comes to managing the inbetweenus region of the anatomy, I tend not to pass judgement. What works works.

    Nice bike btw!

    As long as my wife is not a member of this forum and I keeps shuffling the pumps around the shop she may not notice this one.

    Put it this way: saddles and bars are designed to provide the optimal contact when kept level.
    You can certainly alter their intended position very little, but when you pass that limit to keep things woking well for you, then you should realize that something's wrong with the whole setup

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    I picked up the same ones when Amazon accidentally listed them for a silly good price. It hasn't been warm enough in the early morning to test the reflective quality yet. A few more weeks though and the shoe covers can come off

    Looking forward to trying them! I am long overdue for a new pair of shoes. I love my Factors.

    I'm in the same boat! I'm really interested in seeing how reflective they truly are. The video on the Giro site makes them look wild. Tomorrow is looking pretty warm...But I think I'll be taking the cross bike out which means these will be staying in the box for a few more weeks.

    Tom was kind enough to send me a new decal for my Merlin. I thought about refinishing the frame, but decided to keep the patina, and just apply a fresh set of decals on top.



    The instructions call to baking the frame, but I'm thinking hair dryer instead.
