Hi to you all.This is my maiden submission to the site,so I will avoid the missiles as and when!!!.I have retuned(Freudian Slip) returned to cycling after a longish period of abscense mainly caused by the need for total left knee replacement.However,to the point of my submission.There appears to be a lot more technological theorizing than ever there was in the old days;when you selected your rocket climbed aboard and got on with it.As with all aspects of life subjectivity is the fist consideration in your cycle tool kit.In my case a METRIC ALLEN KEY selection in my CAPE ROLL.(YES I am an OLD SOD!!!!!!!!!!1945 vintage,I was one of those that borrowed and never returned MIVVI,PENDLETONS TWICER and all of the other excellent wraps for the cape straped to the underside of my BLACK BROOKES SWALLOW.I am 4\'10&1/2\",23&1/2 inside leg and have had total left knee replacement.,the problem of mechanical knee and short limbs overcome by 140mm crank arms.Now there is a worthwhile puzzle for optimum positioning/gearing on my Italian Stallion.Adjustments on the road(to comfort)are easy with modern kit(ALLEN KEYS,wonderfull!!!.As much as I waxed lyrical over my Swallow the best bit of modern kit(just added) is my Selle Italia Gel Saddle(in BLUE LEATHER to match in with the bike).I intend to give a try with the one with the pressure relief channel.As so rightly pointed out THE PERINIUM in Pain is not pleasant.Happy and COMFORTABLE RIDING to you all.
Absolutely brilliant. Imagine him on speed/LSD........................
