Re: My new-ish SL4

That's really nice, lovely build.
But those bolts in your stem face plate are really letting it down. Loss one for point.

Who cares if they make you faster, they make your bike look lush. That's reason enough for me to have a pair.

It's not just me then? I got taken out by some stupid bint on a roundabout on Monday night. Thankfully my clavicle is ok, turns out it's just my scapula and ribs that have broken. Oh yes, and my wrist on the other side......... Thankfully the wife has been off work to help with washing/shaving/pissi...

Re: Kask vertigo

Same problem here, Jawbones with a Mojito.

I hate the fact I can't shove the legs of my shades into the vents like I used to with my Catlike. Made me wished I hadn't bothered buying it.

But then I am a tart and want to look the part.

Re: 54cm frame for a 6 foot rider?

lol @ Old_Timer :lol: You're right, there's always another frame out there. Sadly I can't suscribe to the n+1 rule, it's strictly a one-in-one-out rule in this house. I currently have 2, a trainer/commuter and my good bike. The trainer/commuter resides in the dining room and the good bike resides in...

Re: 54cm frame for a 6 foot rider?

dang-nabbit!! Just checked the new measurements against my current bikes. Sadly the headtube/fork steerer is just too short meaing too much of a saddle-bar drop. I like an aggresive/racy position but that would be just too far, my nose would be on the front wheel (not really, but you get the picture...

Re: 54cm frame for a 6 foot rider?

Just doubled checked some measurements. Bar height would be the same, give or take a mm or two.
It would just be top-tube length but if I bung a lay-back post in that would solve the 1cm different.

Hmmmm.

Re: 54cm frame for a 6 foot rider?

You're not helping guys, you were supposed to say walk away :wink:

I'd love to buy it and post a pic of it with miles of seatpost showing just to annoy the long seatpost haters :lol:
But that's not reason alone to buy it.

54cm frame for a 6 foot rider?

So, there's a 54cm frame that I really like, the only thing is I'm 6 foot tall with a 33" inside leg. I currently ride a 55cm 'traditional' geometry frame and a 56cm 'compact' geometry frame. The 55 traditional and 56 compact have almost the same geometry (bar a few mm's here and there). Realis...

Re: Betty Leeds

Needs plain black bar tape and a black stem. You could leave the white hoods if the bar tape was plain black. First pic: seriously bloody gorgeous Last pic: nowhere near. It's funny how little things change the look so radically. These are just my opinions of course. The important thing is if you li...
